The National Association of Nigeria Student President, Mr Sunday Asefon, has declared June 11 and 12 as national days for the repose of the students who died at the hands of kidnappers, and for the safe return of those still held by the evildoers.
The NANS president, Mr Asefon stated this
while speaking to Journalist in Ado Ekiti.
According to him, insecurity has reached a frightening peak in Nigeria, where students could no longer go to school with a guarantee of their safe return home.
“Recently about 200 students of Islamiyya school, were kidnapped in Rafi Local Government of Niger State, in a very shocking and bizarre fashion in just 24 hours, after Greenfield University students, Kaduna were released by their abductors.”
The NANS leader added that June 12 should be a national day of protest for all Nigerian students, rather than a celebration of democracy day.
” Due to the incessant and incurable kidnapping of students in the North-Central and the North-Western region, we are calling for radical and urgent action that will stop Nigeria from driving into anarchy slowly.”
“By putting it in the right perspective, the government and insecurity has failed us, and we no longer trust them, and so the government should convey a national dialogue where people can come with different ideas, and proffer solution to the insecurity issue, because the endless news of students kidnappings in hundreds over the last two years is unacceptable, and it challenges the very fabrics of our national development, unity cohesion and portends grave danger to the educational institutions in Nigeria.”
