Osun state was on Thursday thrown into a state of chaos after some secondary school pupils in Osun State staged a violent protest against the decision of the state government to stop the payment of the West African Senior School Certification Examinations fees.
Hundreds of students trooped out in Ile-Ife to protest the new policy and some of them reportedly attacked some motorists while some of them vandalised property belonging to Orisun FM, a radio station owned by the state government.
The state government had decided to scale down the number of pupils whose fees would be paid this year. This was said to have made the government announce that it would not pay the WASSCE fees of any pupil who failed to have four credits in the mock-examinations.
The pupils were said to have vented their anger on the radio station and vandalised some cars parked on the premises before they left.
