The news just reaching us now is that the post graduate hostel of the delta state university is being razed by fire. The fire is believed to have started around 12:30 a.m this morning.
The fire which was still burning as of the time the news was being compiled had razed almost half of the hostel.
Our correspondents could not ascertain if there is any casualties as of this moment but we will update the news as soon as we get any update. The school fire service station of the school which is a few metres away from the scene of the incident is believed to have reached the scene and doing all they can to put off the fire.
It will be recalled that recently, Delsu has been witnessing deaths of its students for some months now. Just a few days ago, a student died of sickle cell anaemia with the drowning of another student a week earlier. Last year, the school also lost two students, one to an accident and another to malaria sickness.
