The Executive Secretary of the Yobe State Emergency Management Agency, Mohammed Goje, confirmed the incident to Channels Television via telephone.

One of the students who spoke to Channels Television on an anonymous condition said the inferno started around 1 pm on Saturday, forcing the students to run for their lives; others were being evacuated to the specialist hospital in Gashua for medical attention.

The cause of the fire incident is still sketchy, but some students suspect a cooking gas might have caused it.

An amateur video showed the school’s vice chancellor, Professor Maimuna Wazir, consoling one of the students who narrowly escaped the fire incident.

The incident happened exactly one month after a similar one razed down a female hostel at Yobe State University in Damaturu, the state capital.
