My life in danger, NANS President cries


The President of National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Yinka Gbadebo has told Nigerians to hold the Nigerian Police Force responsible if anything happens to him.

The Police were said to have threatened Gbadebo, ordering him to do thorough investigations before blaming them for the incident. Gbadebo spoke in Ibadan after he was released by men of the Oyo State Joint Security Task Force, codenamed ‘Operation Burst’.

He said they have been making calls to him following his statement that the IGP should resign owing to the incessant killings of Nigerian students by the Police Force in the last six months directly or indirectly. He also said that normalcy would not return to the University of Uyo, UNIUYO, until the VC, Prof. Comfort Ekpo is removed.

He charged the Federal Government to remove the woman with immediate effect as according to him, “her negligence and ineptitude led to the killing of our senate president and other comrades.”

Meanwhile, the family of the late former Oyo State NANS JCC chairman, Oladimeji AbdulAzeez, was  contacted early Monday morning. It would be recalled that the deceased who graduated from the University of Ibadan, hailed from Ibadan South East Local Government.

Gbadebo and others, as at the time of filing this report, were on their way to Lagos to inform Donald’s family officially about the incident after which he will move to Owerri to collect the bodies of the “fallen martyrs” and later to FMC Umuahia to visit the survivors of the auto crash.
