Fire guts FUT Minna radio station

17 January 2013, 16:38

Minna – The Community Radio Station of the Federal University of Technology, Minna has been razed down by fire on Wednesday putting the station completely off the air.

The Information Officer of the institution, Mrs Lydia Legbo, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna that the station went into flames at 12 a.m.

She said that one of the students on duty noticed a spark from the electrical connection at the IBB Library complex.

She said that the student immediately raised alarm, adding that the university’s fire service officers rushed to the scene to put the fire off.

“ The studio was completely destroyed but we are lucky that it was put off before spreading to other parts of the library complex.

“Nobody was, however, injured in the inferno but the station will remain off air until it is reconstructed and equipped,” Legbo added.

Meanwhile, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Musibau Akanbi, has urged Gov. Babangida Aliyu to assist the institution by constructing a new studio for the radio.

He told the governor during a courtesy visit on Wednesday in Minna that investigation on the incident had already commenced.
