Students of the Osun State University, College of Education, Ipetu Ijesa Campus protested the new policy of no tuition no examination which was introduced on Monday.

Punch gathered that the students started their first semester examination and the new policy prevented many of them from writing the examination.

It was gathered that some of the students  were prevented from writing some courses on Monday but the students rejected the policy on Tuesday  and disrupted the examination.

A student told our correspondent that the irate students locked the main gate of the university and prevented lecturers from going out after the protest  had started.

Some of the students told our Punch that they could not pay because the state government was owing their parents salaries. They said the schools used to allow them to write exams and after that, students would pay but it was surprising  that  the policy was now changed when the state government had stopped paying salaries.

It was gathered that the management invited policemen to come and quell the protest and this nearly resorted into a fracas.

The armed policemen are still in the school to prevent breakdown of law and order.
