Nigerian students’ body, NANS, tasks Jonathan on insecurity

National Association of Nigerian Students

NANS challenged Nigerian security operatives to wake up to their primary responsibility of protecting lives and property of all the citizenry.

The Vice President, National Affairs, of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Ahmadu Jibril, has challenged the Federal Government to work towards bringing to an end the incessant killing of innocents by suspected terrorists.

The union leader, in a statement on Thursday, condemned the recent bomb explosions that rocked a Kano motor park, killing over 20 people. He said if the trend was not curtailed, the situation was capable of destabilizing the country’s economic fortunes.

Mr. Jibril also challenged Nigerian security operatives to wake up to their primary responsibility of protecting lives and property of all the citizenry without any form of bias.

According to the NANS leader, the Kano incident called for concern as “the explosion was unwarranted.” He appealed for calm among the affected people, particularly those planning demonstrations over the incident.

Reports indicate that some groups have planned staging peaceful demonstrations across Nigeria over the Kano bomb explosion that is believed to have claimed the lives of several non-indigenes of Kano.

The student body also condemned recent attacks on secondary schools in Maiduguri, lamenting that the situation was capable of truncating the education system in Nigeria.

It would be recalled that about 20 secondary schools in Borno state were closed by the state government due to the threat by suspected Boko Haram members.
