More than 50 female students of the University of Jos, occupying  the ground floor of  Block B, Naraguta  hostel have been   dislodged  by flood . Witnesses said that the affected female students have sought alternative temporary accommodation. While some have taken refuge in male hostels others  are believed to have joined their female friends in the various hostels .

Our correspondent said the flood may have been  caused by lack of good drainage system and that the week long downpour  led to the flood which ravaged the female hostel.

Already,the Dean Students Affairs Prof. Rotgak Gofwen, hostel supervisor Mr. M – Ibrahim and Physical Facilities have visited the scene.   They  described the situation as unfortunate and appealed to the student to be calm as the University’s authority was doing everything possible to avert a recurrence.

Comrade Laritmwa Dinget,  Hall Governor of Naraguta block B said  that over 50 students of the block were  stranded and that she has been making arrangement to arrange accommodation for the affected victims. Dinget called on the university authority to open up drainage system to ensure  free passage of water without posing  further threat to the hostel.
