The students of Oyo State College of Education, Lanlate, have raised alarm over several attacks by dangerous animals on the campus.
The students complained that the bushy and unkempt state of the institution’s environment invading the campus to attack them.
In a statement signed by the Students Union Government (SUG) President, Muhammad Yusuf, the students called for the resignation of the Dean of the Students Affairs of the institution over alleged sexual harassment.
The statement made available to the reporter on Monday reads:
“Fellow Nigerian students, our college has been in existence for more than fifteen years, but, it has been badly managed in the greater part of these years.
“Despite charging an outrageous sum of Three thousand (N3,000) cumulatively, the management has refused to issue any form of identification to students, exposing us to harassment and denying us scholarship opportunities.
“In the twenty-first century, students are unable to check their results online and print course forms despite paying for this every semester.
“We are required to pay Eight Thousand Naira (N8,000) at 100 level, and Three Thousand Naira in 200 level and 300 level each, yet no noticeable development can be seen.
“The school environment is bushy and unkempt with dangerous animals attacking students during lectures.
“The Dean of Students Affairs who is expected to act as a father takes pleasure in having sexual relationships with female students and threatening to withhold student’s result.
“Fellow Nigeria Students, as we continue the protest tomorrow, I urge us to remain steadfast and peaceful. Our demand remains the immediate resignation of the provost and the Dean of Student Affairs.”
Recall that on June 3, 2017, the Oyo State Government announced the indefinite closure of Emmanuel Alayande College of Education (EACOED), Oyo, owing to violent protests by students over their welfare.
