A video of a gas explosion involving a student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) in Awkwa, Anambra state, has surfaced online and gone viral.


In the short clip, the yet-to-be-identified student of the institution was seen on a Facebook live session as she relished her hair.

The female student was still on Facebook live when the gas exploded, leaving the room in disarray.

“I’m so proud of myself that I have such hair, you’ll not understand, that’s why you’re…,” she was heard saying before the blast.


Amid the ensuing melee, other students believed to be occupants of the hostel were heard screaming “Jesus Christ”.

The explosion was said to have occurred at the El-Shaddai hostel on Tuesday while an occupant of one of the rooms was reportedly making popcorn.

In another video, some students were seen trying to stop the fire from spreading to other parts of the building.


As of the time of this report, it remains unclear if any casualty was recorded during the explosion.

The varsity has also not reacted to the incident as video of the explosion continues to dominate discussions on social media platforms.
