The National Congress of Nigerian Students has urged the Federal Government to ensure that all culprits of the gruesome murder of about 40 students of the Federal Polytechnic, Mubi, Adamawa State are punished according to the law.
NACONS National President, Abdulfatah Abdulsalam, said in a statement on Saturday that the killers of the students were bent on destroying and retarding the development of the country.
He also called on the law enforcement agents to ensure thorough investigation into the massacre, adding that the culprits must be brought to book.
He urged the Federal Government and the National Assembly to tackle insecurity in campuses by initiating and enacting laws that would severely sanction cultism on the nation’s campuses.
The student leader said cultism must be routed by tertiary institutions in the country. We find it extremely difficult to cope with the loss of our colleagues, friends, brothers and sisters that lost their lives in the course of the attack.
School authorities in conjunction with the security agents in Nigeria should provide maximum security for all tertiary institutions in Nigeria. “The office of the Special Adviser to the President on Students and Youths Matter should also coordinate the networking of the adequate security needed to protect the lives of the future leaders of this nation”, he said.
