NEMA confirms 1 death in UNILAG guest house fire


One person has been confirmed dead in
a fire outbreak that gutted a section of
the University of Lagos Guest House in
the early hours of Thursday in Lagos.



The victim, said to be a guest who came
for the ongoing 2014/2015 convocation
of the institution, was said to have died
of suffocation.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)
gathered that the fire started around
2.00 a.m.

It was further confirmed that the
incident took place via  text message sent to the spokes man of NAN.

Farinloye quoted the Zonal Coordinator
of NEMA for Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states,
Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu, as saying that
four rooms – A12, A13, A14 and A15 –
were affected by the fire.

“The deceased will be flown to
Maiduguri for burial today,’’ the text
message read in part.

Effort to speak with officials of the
university, about the incident yielded no result as everyone claimed to be busy with the convocation events and could not talk to the press.

It was reported that the three-day activities for the 2014/2015 convocation end on Thursday.
