The National Association of Nigerian Students has suspended its planned June 12 nationwide protest.

NANS President, Sunday Asefon, made this known in a statement this morning.

It was titled, ‘NANS Suspends June 12 Protest over concerns about safety of protesters and fear of possible hijack by Politicians – Comrade Sunday Asefon’.

According to the NANS president, the planned protest was aimed at decrying the insecurity in the country, especially the serial abductions of students.

However, Asefon said some politicians with “different agenda” have perfected plans to hijack the protest to “ventilate their political opinions and sentiments”.
