ASUU Strike: Angry Students To Take Protest To Barracks Over Disruption By Soldiers

The National Association of Nigeria Students Joint Campus Committee (NANS-JCC) is set to take their protest to the Nigerian Army Barracks after soldiers disrupted their peaceful demonstration in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

Describing the act by the military as barbaric, the students gave the soldiers 48 hours to tender an apology after they were dispersed on Tuesday while protesting the prolonged ASUU strike.

Speaking in a statement, NANS-JCC Chairman, Omotoso Surprise, stated that the students would not leave the barracks until "they are done killing every one of us, since they are trigger friendly on civilians and pets to criminals."

According to Surprise, the soldiers destroyed and carted away valuables belonging to the students with some of the students sustaining injuries while scampering for safety.

He added that different chapters of the students' body across the nation will begin mobilisation for nationwide protests in barracks should the military fail to apologise.

"Without much ado, we wish to reiterate the fact that the Nigerian Students are not insurgents as such the Nigerian army should channel their anger to the appropriate quarters and desist from disrupting the peaceful solidarity movement of Nigerian Students.

"We also demand a public apology from the said force (Nigeria Army) and that valuables carted away by these elements, those lost and destroyed during the criminal operation be immediately restored. And that the army takes full responsibility for the treatment of injured persons during the ugly scenario.

"We await the immediate response of the Nigeria Army", he said.
