No fewer than seven buildings at the University of lbadan were badly damaged as a result of a downpour on Friday night. 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some of the buildings include the Students Union Government building, two halls of residence and the Chemistry Laboratory of the institution’s International School. 

Others were the Tedder and Bello Halls, some structures in the Faculty of Agriculture as well as the electric transformer at the SUG building.

Addressing newsmen on Saturday while assessing the extent of damage, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration), Prof. Emilolorun Aiyelari, described the incident as unfortunate.

Aiyelari said that the institution had yet to determine the cost of repairing the damage, adding, however, that the incident would not affect academic activities.

“We have recorded a lot of damage, unquantified for now, but we will soon be able to know how much it will cost.

“This will not affect our academic activities because our students are on holiday except for the post graduate students writing their projects.

“You know we are resuming on the 16th of this month. We will have enough time to repair them,” he said.  (NAN)
