Students of the Federal College of Agriculture, Akure on Thursday, staged a protest over land encroachment in their school.

The students lamented their lives were in danger over illegal structures being erected in their school premises.

The students who carried various placards, barricaded the Ijapo/Agbogbo road in Akure metropolis, which caused gridlock.

 Speaking with The Hope Metro, a student of the school highlighted the precarious situation  faced by students, citing  cases where some individuals attempted to acquire part of the school land, posing significant risks to students’ safety.

He expressed deep concerns over the indiscriminate setting of fire on the bush in the school premises, exacerbating the threat to students’ lives.

According to him, the encroachers were not only setting fire, but also engaging in illegal activities, such as cutting down of trees and constructing unauthorized structures.

Reacting in a telephone interview, the  College’s Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funke Asaguna, said she was not authorized to speak on the issue.

Also, when our correspondent put a call across to the Provost of the College, Mr Akinyemi Fadiyimu,  he said  he was not in the position to  react.
