The management of the Imo State Uni­versity (IMSU), Owerri is set to investigate the cause of a fire outbreak that razed down the insti­tution’s Faculty of Human­ities on Thursday.

The fire razed down several academic teach­ing aids, student results, properties, and the build­ing. Several computers were also affected.

Sources told The Au­thority Daily that the fire started in the wee hours of Thursday, when students and staff of the institution were away.

When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Nze Ralph Njoku confirmed the de­velopment even as he dis­closed that the incident will be investigated.

According to him, of­ficers of the Federal Fire service were on ground to quell the fire but add­ed that their water was ex­hausted without the fire totally quenched.

On their part, stu­dents lamented over the incident and expressed hopes that records of their results are replicat­ed in other units of the institution, saying it should not amount to extra years in school or delay for the National Youth Service Service.

As at the time of this report, the fire had been contained and quenched.
