Share This

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called on the executive governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to intervene and probe the death of an undergraduate student of the Lagos State University (LASU), Nurudeen Alowonle, popularly called Omomeewa.

The association has listed four other demands which includes the governor ensuring that the state sponsors the student’s burial and that the widow of the deceased student be compensated accordingly.

They stressed that the governor has a three-day ultimatum to meet the requests made on the death of their colleague else failure to come through will lead to mobilization of over four million students to engage in massive demonstrations and agitation for justice.

NANS has made its demands in a statement released by the state Chairman, Olalere Owoseni, who stated that “as the umbrella body of the student’s body in Lagos State we can’t afford to let this get swept under the carpet”.

Part of the statement read; “The assassination and nature of events which lead to the death of our dear comrade is a gross violation of for all of our collective rights as “injury against one is an injury against all”.

“On this note of highly venerated stance, NANS Lagos Chapter, with an estimated population of over 4.1 million students hereby unequivocally demand that Lagos State Government in the next three days as a matter of urgency, non-negotiably do the following without any diminishing qualification:

“The Governor of Lagos State must make a public statement on the tragic demise of comrade Omomeewa. The Governor of Lagos State must set up a panel of inquiry to investigate the merit of the allegation of admission racketeering levied against Omomeewa and if lacking merit (as it obviously is), exonerate him posthumously and prosecute the evil engineers.
