National Association of Nigerian Students condemns Plateau State killings


The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has condemned the recent killings in Plateau State in which Police confirmed 86 persons, including children dead on Sunday.

NANS also condemned in totality the brutal killings of innocent citizens, including children, students and parents by suspected herdsmen in various parts of the country for selfish reasons.

A statement by NANS Senate President, Mr Taiwo Bamigbade, urged the government to urgently arrest the situation.

He also expressed concern that brutal killing of human beings were becoming common in the country as value was no longer placed on human life.

NANS, further urged President Muhammadu Buhari to take urgent necessary measures to secure lives and properties, stressing that it was the primary purpose of government.

Bamigbade, however, described the procurement of fighter helicopters by the Federal Government toward curtailing the menace of deadly attacks as a highly commendable action.

While demanding prosecution of those responsible, NANS also urged the president to rejig the security apparatus of the country for better results
