There was pandemonium in a female hostel at the University of Abuja recently after a student tried to burn down the entire hostel.
It was gathered that the student intentionally set her mattress on fire inside her room and watched as the fire spread to the entire room.
A video shared online shows the moment the room was up in flames, and her colleagues watched in disbelief.
The student was also seen brandishing a knife to presumably scare people away and prevent them from tackling the fire.
However, when the fire started burning uncontrollably with thick black smoke coming out of the room, her fellow students were forced to intervene before it got out of hand.
While some students wrestled the culprit to the ground, others swung into action and put out the fire.
The management of the university are yet to comment on the bizarre incident.
