KWASU invasion: NANS condemns EFCC, NDLEA's action  

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has condemned the invasion of the Kwara State University (KWASU) by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the National Drug and  Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

NANS made this known in a statement through its National Assistant Secretary, Kolawole Mayowa Sodiq on Friday.

"Such an invasion, particularly within the academic environment, is viewed as unprofessional and has the potential to disrupt the academic activities of the studious students, especially during the ongoing examination period. NANS ASG considers this invasion unpatriotic and urges the Kwara State Government to intervene immediately to address the situation.

"We understand the need for security agencies to maintain law and order and curb any illicit activities within the student population. However, we firmly advise that such interventions should be conducted with utmost professionalism, adherence to due process, and in a manner that does not disrupt the academic pursuits of the students.

"NANS Assistant Secretary-General emphasizes the importance of intelligent gathering by security agencies to identify individuals with questionable characters among the student population rather than conducting random raids and invasions of hostels. We encourage security agencies to work collaboratively with student leaders in identifying and addressing any security concerns within the university environment.

"We believe that a more strategic and collaborative approach between security agencies, the state government, and student leaders will yield better results in maintaining a safe and conducive academic environment. Students with questionable characters should be subject to thorough investigation following due process, and appropriate actions should be taken based on the outcomes of such investigations."

Mayowa commended the swift response of the Special Assistant on Students' Affairs to Kwara State Governor, Salami Wasiu Onidugbé, the leadership of NANS Kwara JCC, and the management of Kwara State University, Malete for their collective efforts in protecting and engaging the stakeholders involved in a bid to prevent such occurrence in the future.

The student body also called on the Kwara State Government to swiftly intervene in the matter to ensure that the rights and well-being of the students at KWASU are protected.

XWe urge all stakeholders to prioritize the conducive academic environment needed for the students' success and growth."
