UNILAG students: NANS fumes, gives 24 hours ultimatum






The National Association of Nigerian Students has handed down a 24 hours ultimatum within which it said a Special Offences Mobile Court in Lagos should release 13 students of the University of Lagos, currently being detained at the Kirikiri Maximum Prisons.

The organisation threatened to relocate its headquarters to the Kirikiri Maximum Prisons in solidarity with its members, should their detention continue.



The mobile court had on Saturday remanded 13 UNILAG students in Kirikiri Prisons, pending their bail application.

They accused persons, standing trial before Chief Magistrate P.E Nwaka, were alleged to have engaged in an unlawful invasion of an Television Continental complex in Lagos.

They were arraigned on a two-count charge of unlawful invasion and disruption of activities and have all pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the charge.

The accused are: Femi Adeyeye, Toni Aina, Kodri Yaya, Asimi Oladime, Ismahim Olalekan, Segun Okesola, Abdulazeez Soneye, Idris Abogunloko, and Muyiwa Olaniyi.

Others are Toheed Oladimeji, Joseph Akanni, Lukumon Olusegun, and Abiodun Agbeniyi.

The magistrate, who ordered that the accused be remanded in prison, adjourned the case till April 6 for a determination of their bail.

But the President of NANS, Chinonso Obasi, on Monday in Abuja, condemned the action of the court which remanded the students in Kirikiri prisons.


He said, “After a painstaking review of the circumstances surrounding the draconian ruling, we have resolved to demand and hereby demand the unconditional release of these students within 24 hours.
