The storm which began in the early hours of Tuesday morning had roofing sheets flying off after a deafening wind briefly swept through the school.
The wall that separates Fagunwa hall from the marshes outside it also collapsed.
Narrating her experience, a resident of Moremi, Aniebietabasi Ufia, said it was very scary.
“It was scary. Initially I didn’t think it was something serious until people in my hostel started screaming.
“I ran out and saw zinc sheets in the air like nylon bags, the wind carried fire about, basins and buckets were tossed about like feathers. It was a frightful experience”, she said.
