However, according Shehu Alhaji Musa, vice chancellor of the university, only five people sustained injuries in the incident .

“I can confirm to you that no life was lost and only five persons who are not even students of the university sustained injuries,” he told reporters in Kano.

“We have not recorded a single death casualty over the incident; the university mobilised all its organs, including security operatives, to ensure the excavation of the collapsed building.

“It is part of the building that collapsed; not the entire building. We acknowledge that the building had problems and a committee has been set up to investigate it.”

He assured the public that the excavation was ongoing to ascertain what was left after the collapse, and the details would be made available thereafter.
