Bayelsa Convention: NANS Consoles Family Of Slain Student. by bro4u: 5:35am On Nov 29
The National Association of
Nigerian Students (NANS) has
condoled with the family of Mr
Elvis Magam, a 300 level
student of the University of
Uyo (UniUyo), Akwa-Ibom state
who died at the association’s
Zone B convention.


A statement by NANS President,
Mr Chinonso Obasi, on Tuesday
in Abuja that Magam was shot
dead by suspected cultists at
the Federal University, Otu-Oke,
Bayelsa State.
Chinonso Obasi, NANS
President


He commended the Bayelsa
Police Command and the
Department of State Services
for their swift response and
arrest of suspects, adding that
the culprits should be
prosecuted accordingly.
Obasi said that the opening
ceremony of the convention
witnessed clashes among
contending aspirants over who
would represent the state at
the Zonal leadership of NANS.
“It is unfortunate that some
misguided youths parading as
students were drafted in by
some aspirants to frustrate the
efforts of the organisers.


“The national leadership of
NANS salutes the promptness
with which the security
agencies apprehended some
suspects and clearly wish to
state that the association is
interested in the arrest,
investigation and prosecution
of all those involved including
their sponsors.
“It is crude, inhuman and
unfathomable that young
people now resort to arms
possession and usage in clearly
a student’s election,’’ he said.


According to Obasi, NANS’
disapproval of such
desperation is evident in its
numerous efforts at sensitising
and preaching peace.
He said that NANS’ leadership
would assist the security
agencies in their ongoing
investigation in order to
ensure that Magam’s family got
justice.
The NANS president called on
students who participated at
the convention to assist the
security agencies in fishing out
all those involved in the
mindless killing of a fellow
student.


Mr Asuquo Amba, the
Commissioner of Police in
Bayelsa, on Monday confirmed
the incident, adding that some
arrests had been made.

Meanwhile the SUG leadership of the affected institution- UNIUYO has come out to publicly address the students of the school, letting them know what happened as their SUG president is being detained for 'alledgely' being in possession of arms.

THE STATE OF THE PRESIDENT OF
THE STUDENTS' UNION
GOVERNMENT, COMRADE DUFF
GABRIEL
The leadership of the Students'
Union Government wishes to
inform the members of the
union, the University community
and the general public that:
1 - The President, Comrade Duff
Gabriel was among Senators of
the National Association of
Nigerian Students (NANS) from
Akwa Ibom State, who are SUG
presidents of respective higher
institutions across the state,
including President of College of
Education, Afaha Nsit, Comr.
Uwakmfon Akwaowo, President-
elect of Akwa Ibom State
University, Comr. Aniekpeno
Solomon and others who
accompanied the Special
Assistant to Governor Udom on
Student Matters, Miss Otobong
Akpan (Aquilla) to a NANS
National Convention, at Federal
University, Otueke, Bayelsa State
on Friday, 24th November, 2017.
2 - Comrade Duff Gabriel was
among students who were
collared by men of the Nigeria
Police Force at about 5:00 pm on
Saturday, 25th November at the
venue for the convention,
following an uproar which led to
mass arrest of persons found in
the arena by policemen of the
Bayelsa State Command.
3 - Comrade Duff and others who
were nabbed were moved to the
police headquarters in Yenogoa,
Bayelsa State same evening
4 - The Police which made the
random arrest to restore
normalcy later released the
arrested students, except those
who were conveyed to the
convention venue in a branded
bus belonging to the governor's
aide on Student Matters, Miss
Akpan, with no one claiming
ownership or possession of the
arms. Hence, Comrade Gabriel
and other occupants of the said
vehicle are in kept police custody
till date for investigations.
However, the leadership of the
union frowns at false reports
circulating rumours that
Comrade Duff Gabriel was
arrested for attempted murder
according to Sunnews, an
information which has been
copied by other media houses
and news blogs, while Comr.
Gabriel is only a victim of
circumstance. Reporters are
however advised to depend only
on reliable sources for verifiable
information on the matter.
Meanwhile, Comrade Duff Gabriel
is safe and in good health.
Students are therefore advised to
remain calm, while appropriate
procedures are followed to
secure his release.

Na wao!

That is how they all begins. Carrying gun to a supposedly peaceful event as if they are going for hunting or war.

When they graduate and want to contest for political positions,they unleash mayhem on any opposition from what they learnt in the university.

Shame on you students!
