A fire outbreak at 3 locations in Federal Polytechnic Oko, reportedly caused pandemonium in the school environment as it reportedly occurred while students slept.
It was gathered that the fire outbreak at Federal Polytechnic Oko, occurred shortly after students objected the school management’s decision to move from CBT mode of writing exams to paper and pen.
While students reportedly slept last night, fire razed down down Exams and Records building, which is close to the female hostel just after the pen and paper examinations began yesterday morning. Eyewitnesses further alleged that a truck was also set ablaze in front of the Asorock building, and fire was set to the Computing Unit opposite the school’s bookshop.
Though the cause of the fire is still under investigation, however sources in the school alleged that it might be the handiwork of a student. The school’s exam has been put on hold, students have been driven out of the campus as the school’s gate has also been locked.
