Blocks of classrooms were set ablaze in Oyo on Thursday, marking the worst phase of secondary school students’ unrest that began days ago over mass failure in exams, Premium Times reports.
According to teachers, the classrooms set on fire were at Isale Community High School, Oyo Town. But students elsewhere have threatened to cause similar damage to public property in their schools.
Crisis erupted on Monday following mass failure in the last promotion examinations across secondary schools in Oyo State.
Fire service agents were quickly drafted to the school to extinguish the fire.
