The United Bank for Africa also offered to construct another bridge and a road in the university, while the Bauchi State Government is to construct a road network within the campus. The bridge linking the hostels and lecture halls collapsed at about 11.45pm on Monday following flooding after a downpour. Seven students were reportedly injured.
