The proprietor of the College of Education, Ero, Ondo State, Mr Oyeleye Fasua, on Thursday, appealed to the protesting students of the institution to be calm, saying the issue of mobilising them for the National Youths Service Corps would be addressed.
The students of the college on Monday staged a protest over the failure of the institution to mobilise them for the NYSC after completing their degree programmes in the institution. The five-year degree programmes were affiliated with the Adekunle Ajasin Univerisity, Akungba Akoko.
During the protest, the angry students blocked the Akure-Ilesa Expressway, and held Fasua hostage, demanding the return of their tuition fees if they could not be mobilised for the NYSC scheme.
The students also vandalized some properties of the school during the protest.
