NANS Raises Alarm Over Cultists’ Plot to Disrupt Governor Abiodun’s Inauguration in Ogun State.
Ogun State’s National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) chapter has warned about a possible disturbance to Governor Dapo Abiodun’s May 29 inauguration.
NANS Ogun Joint Campus Committee (JCC) and the National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS) claim that opposition political parties and a yet-to-be-identified cult group led by Falola Ahmed plan to wreak havoc during the ceremony. In a joint statement, the student groups urged the government and security agencies to investigate and prevent the impending chaos.
“We are calling on all security agencies in the state, particularly the Department of State Security (DSS) and Nigerian Police Force to take this statement very seriously as a security alert to investigate the issues raised above to maintain law and order in the state.
“We have been informed reliably that these people have been paid heavily by some politicians in the opposition party to disrupt the peace of the state and stampede the inauguration process later in this month. But because they knew that they would need an association under which they can carry out their shenanigans, they have resorted to using the name of NANS and NAOSS to flag their protest to this end”.
According to the statement, Kehinde and Ogunrombi cleared the name of Adeyemi Azeez Amoo, the Special Assistant to the Ogun State Governor on Students Matters, of any involvement in the student unrest that occurred in Abeokuta last Sunday. They revealed that the incident resulted from NANS leadership’s efforts to eliminate intruders from their ranks.
“To start with, Adeyemi Azeez has nothing to do with what happened on Sunday, May 7, 2023. Falola Ahmed Stainless, with some non-credible persons like himself, gathered in Abeokuta to impersonate the Senate of NANS in an illegitimate meeting without the consent of the legitimate leaders of NANS in the state”.
“We had only made the move to stop them from gathering when Stainless and his cronies resulted in violence. It is not surprising that the hunter who unluckily became the prey in his own gimmicks is crying foul and wrongly alleging Governor Abiodun’s S.A on Students Matters of plotting his fake attack”.
“On the contrary, we were attacked and had to defend ourselves, having gone to their midst to question their rights to organize themselves and impersonate our offices. We know for a fact that if there is any individual that should be arrested, investigated, and charged for cultism, it should be Falola Ahmed Stainless, for he is a well-known Alora member. We are challenging him to put himself up for investigation on this openly”.
