The roof of the lecture pavilion the corps members took shelter in during a heavy downpour collapsed on them.

The witness said no death was recorded as all the trapped victims were rescued with bruises and injuries.

Those with minor injuries were said to have been taken to the NYSC camp clinic while others were taken to the Igbinedion Teaching Hospital.

An official of the NYSC who pleaded anonymity confirmed the incident and said all the victims were rescued.
