3 dead, 200 injured while writing WASSCE as school building collapses

3 pupils, including a girl, were
killed and hundreds injured on Wednesday when a building in which they
were writing the West African Examination Council School Certificate
examination (WASCE) collapsed on them.

The incident occurred in Alpha Academy, a private secondary school in Mararaba, Donga Local Government Area of Taraba State.

Some 560 candidates were writing the examination in Alpha Academy.
Many of them complained of the cracks before the building came down on
Wednesday.

Of the 200 injured candidates, 30 are said to be in critical
condition at the CRCN Hospital, Takum, where doctors are battling to
save their lives. So sad!
