There was pandemonium in Eruwa town, Ibarapa East Local Government area of Oyo State, last week, as students of Eruwa Polytechnic, Eruwa, went on rampage.

The students protested against the decision of the school management to send Higher National Diploma (HND) students in the Department of Business Administration home after they were initially admitted.

MySchoolGist learnt that the affected HND one students of Business Administration were told to go home after being admitted, paid their school fees and had even been receiving lectures. The school now said they cannot admit them again, telling them to go home and come back next session.

Sources further informed that police and soldiers on the state security agency, formerly known as Operation Burst are on the trail of the students.

This, according to sources led  to alleged gun shot on a student and another, a female student, also alleged to be asthmatic was tear gassed. The two students were said to be undergoing treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
