14

The newly elected national president of the National Association of University Students (NAUS), Comrade Ijegalu Felix, Sunday, called on the Inspection General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, to withdraw police personnel attached to VIPs across the country.

He said the personnel should be redeployed to various institutions of learning to protect students.

Felix stated this in his maiden press conference held at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Secretariat, Iwe Iroyin, Oke Ilewo, Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.

He lamented the incessant attacks on university campuses across the country by bandits, saying students now live in constant fear of being kidnapped or killed.

“It is also imperative for us to register our displeasure at the disturbing and incessant attacks on students of tertiary institutions in their various campuses across the nation by bandits, kidnappers and marauding criminal herdsmen.

“It is most worrisome and unfortunate that in Nigeria today, hardly will a day go by without the news of an attack on our institutions of learning, with students, lecturers and other staff members being kidnapped or killed by suspected bandits or criminal herdsmen,” he said.
