The multi-million naira edifice housing the Faculty of Social Science at the permanent site of the University of Jos was on Saturday night gutted by fire, leaving the structure in ruins.

The fire outbreak, which reportedly started about 9 pm from the top-most floor of the six-storey building, could not be immediately controlled by men of the Fire Service, who not only got to the scene late, allegedly struggled for hours to get to the topmost floor.

The building houses several other departments, including Political Science, library, Sociology, Economics, and Accounting departments.

The cause of the inferno could not be immediately ascertained, though students of the school tweeted that it may not be unconnected with power surge from electricity supply seeing that the outbreak started shortly after power was restored to the building.
