In this article, we consider the three dimensional $\alpha$-fractional nonlinear differential system of the form $$ D^{\alpha}\left(x(t)\right)=a(t)f\left(y(t)\right), $$ $$ D^{\alpha}\left(y(t)\right)=-b(t)g\left(z(t)\right), $$ $$ D^{\alpha}\left(z(t)\right)=c(t)h\left(x(t)\right),\quad t \geq t_0, $$ where $0 < \alpha \leq 1$, $D^{\alpha}$ denotes the Katugampola fractional derivative of order $\alpha$. We establish some new sufficient conditions for the oscillation of the solutions of the differential system, using the generalized Riccati transformation and inequality technique. Examples illustrating the results are also given.
