Five persons have been injured when a three-storey building under construction in the Kano State University of Technology, Wudil, collapsed.
The incident occurred when some students of the institution were reportedly reading in the building which is being constructed by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, an intervention agency in the Nigerian education sector.
The spokesperson of the institution, ABDULLAHI ABDULLAHI, confirmed the incident, adding that it was a minor one and that the school authorities had already taken action on it.
ABDULLAHI also denied reports that there was no excavator to evacuate the rubble and that about five of them were drafted to the scene.
It was gathered that some of the students of the institution had always preferred to read in the building even though it was still under construction.
