Property worth millions of naira were burnt beyond recognition as fire razed the staff quarters of the Maryam Babangida Girls Science Secondary School.
Property burnt included a private car parked in one of the garages of the quarters, furniture and other household equipment as well as food items.
The fire was put out by the state fire service after raging for three hours.
Punch was at the scene of the incident on Thursday and saw neighbours teamed up with firefighters to control the inferno but they could not salvage their property.
The cause of the fire had yet to be known but some people suspected it could have been as a result of a power surge.
