Some students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, MAPOLY, Abeokuta, have protested the institution’s increments of tuition fees and alleged extortion by the management of the school.

The students in their thousands barricaded the main entrance of the institution and prevented movement into the school premises.

The protest which disrupted the ongoing second-semester examination saw the protesting students displaying inscriptions such as: “#Say No To Unreasonable Increment Now!!!”, “Say no to extortion” and “Bring back our 60/40 per cent among others.

The chairman of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Ogun State, Comrade Simeon Damilola, demanded the immediate reversal of all increased fees and abolishment of the newly introduced fees.

Mr Damilola called for the investigation of the management of the institution for alleged misappropriation and mismanagement of funds in the school.

The institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Yemi Ajibola while speaking on the protest said it was not true that the institution increased the tuition fee.
