The angry students made bonfires at different locations of the College Campus to express their dismay disrupting academic and other activities for several hours.
President of the Students Union Government, Mr. AbdulGaniyu Abdulquadir, who spoke for protesting students, said the situation non release of their result was affecting their progress.
He lamented that they were unable to be mobilised for National Youths Service Corps Scheme (NYSC) like their counterparts in sister institutions.
The ex-students’ union president said they wrote their final papers on August 23, 2013, and wondered why the result was not release till now.
He said their counterparts who undergone similar programme in Lagos and Oyo states had been mobilised for the forthcoming Scheme.
Some officers and men of the B Division police station, IIorin, led by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Mr. Adeleke AbdulRasaq, later arrived the college premises to ensure safety of lives and property.
Provost of the college, Dr Isiaka Opobiyi, while addressing the protesters, said the college had been making efforts at ensuring that the Ekiti state University released their result.
He promised to set up representatives which would include some ex-students of the programme to visit the university authorities in Ado-Ekiti with the aim of solving the problem.
