Following the massive failure of students during their last Promotion examinations due to the Oyo State government’s decision to raise the standard of education in the state, some students of Isale-Oyo Community Grammar School have set some of the school buildings on fire leading to an outbreak of violence.
Aggrieved students assembled some other colleagues early yesterday morning October 27, before proceeding to the school compound to destroy properties.
If not for the timely intervention of the State Fire Service, the fire started by the angry students would have destroyed more than it did.
Despite the fact that security operatives have been informed about it, none of the culprits has been arrested.
The school compound appeared deserted as teachers and students have fled the area for fear of being harmed. Some of the culprits were also seen with dangerous weapons and charms, threatening lives and damaging properties.
