The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has re-emphasized its demand for a full scale investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of four students of the University of Port-Harcourt.
In a statement made available to LEADERSHIP and signed by the national president of the association, Comrade Dauda Mohammed, the association said, ‘we want to express our disappointment at the security agencies over their seeming lack of commitment into bringing the perpetrators to justice.’
While reacting to the recent killings in Mubi, the president said, ‘in line with our earlier ultimatum, we are determined to ensure that the Adamawa State government takes proper steps that can guarantee the safety of lives and properties in the state before we allow the reopening of Federal Polytechnic, Mubi and review our call for a boycott of academic activities in other institutions in the state.
In the same rein, the association further condemned the extra judicial killing of four students who were alleged to have stolen some properties at the students’ community in Allu, Rivers State. Comrade Dauda referred to the incident as barbaric and should not be allowed to continue in a sane clime.
The association has however called on the Rivers state government to immediately bring the perpetrators to justice and enjoined the security agencies to ensure that all those involved are arrested and made to face the law.
