The National Association of Nigerian Students on Friday announced the suspension of its June 12 planned nationwide protest in the country
This was made in a statement signed by NANS president, Comrade Sunday Asefon, on Friday.
According to the the statement, the current level of insecurity in the country informed the decision.
The statement read, “Having considered the current security realities and the danger to the lives of our members in case of possible hijack of the planned protest, I in consultation with all the structures of NANS, therefore, announce the suspension of our proposed protest for June 12.
“The suspension of the protest is necessary to avoid a clash of interest and clash with security agencies that are on red alert to protect the nation’s infrastructures from security breaches on the proposed date as a result of many other protests slated for the date.
“We intend to protest for better security and improved welfare for our students, we must therefore not put the life of any of our students at risk to ventilate our grievances.”
