What would have been a major fire disaster at the University of Benin, has been averted following the timely intervention by the University’s Fire Service Department and Security personnel led by the Acting Chief Security Officer, as well as other concerned members of the UNIBEN Community.
According to the Institution’s Public Relations Officer, Benedicta Ehanire, PhD, the fire incident, which reports say broke out at about 10pm, Friday, occurred at the Department of Linguistics and affected two offices.
She said a similar midnight fire incident had occurred five months ago at the Dean’s office in the same Faculty.
