The collapse of the bridge was as a result of a heavy downpour in the state which lasted for several hours.
The exact number of casualties was sketchy as of the time of filing this report as some sources within the school said two students were carried away by the flood while some said three and some even put the number at four with several others missing.
A source said, “I learnt that eight students have been killed, many others are missing. One corpse was found around the Nigerian Air force Base (over 5 kilometres away), many are still missing.”
According to another source within the institution said, “The bridge linking the classes with the hostels collapsed as a result of yesterday’s (Monday) torrential rain while students were returning to the hostels”.
Another student who pleaded anonymity said the incident happened between 11:30 p.m. and 12:00 a.m.
