No fewer than seven buildings at the University of lbadan(UI), including Tedder and Bello halls of residence were badly damaged as a result of a downpour on Friday night.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some of the other buildings affected were the Students Union Government building and the Chemistry Laboratory of the institution’s International School.
Others affected were some structures in the Faculty of Agriculture as well as the electric transformer at the SUG building.
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 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.
