A swarm of bees has disrupted the on-going second semester examination at Adamawa State Polytechnic, Yola, in Nigeria’s north east.
Students of the polytechnic, who were seated for the morning papers at 8.30 a.m., scrambled out when the bees flew into the examination hall, NAN reported.
“We were sent packing by bees this morning and we have to abandon the examination hall,” one of the affected students, who identified himself as Jacob, said.
In the campus, the students were seen in groups holding leaves which they waved around their body to keep away the invading insects.
Reacting to the development, the Rector of the institution, Professor Bobboi Umar, said that the incident had been brought under control.
“So far, things are okay and there is no case of serious injury to the students from the attack of the bees,” Umar said.
He said that the morning papers had been suspended till afternoon.
