Moremi Fire Outbreak: 'Response From Porter Was Slow' – Eye Witness

Things almost turned awry on Tuesday, 19th October, 2016 at the Moremi Hall of Residence at the Obafemi Awolowo University as a leaking gas cylinder caught fire.

Save for quick intervention of apt persons at Moremi Hall of residence at Obafemi Awolowo University, it would, probably have been a different situation at room 303 Block E, Moremi Hall.

In the affected room at about 2:20pm, there were four girls, one of whom was unknowingly cooking on a leaking gas cylinder before things got out of control, leading to a fire outbreak.

According to an eye witness account related to OAU Peeps News Agency correspondent, immediately the fire broke out, the owner of the gas cylinder ran to the portal for help but unexpectedly, the porter officials did not show up on time.

No casualty was however recorded and they were able to recover some of their property from the fire outbreak.

Here are some pictures of the affected room.
