The National Association of Nigerian Students has asked Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to probe the death of a student activist at the Lagos State University, Nurudeen Alowonle, popularly called Omomeewa.
The student body, which also made four other demands, gave the governor a three-day ultimatum to meet the requests. If the governor and state governor fail to act, NANS threatened to mobilise over four million students to “do the needful” in What would Be a massive protest.
The demands were contained in a statement by the Chairman of NANS in Lagos State, Olalere Owoseni, titled, ‘Omomeewa’s assassination – How vice-chancellors, rectors, provosts and lecturers’ common practice of political and academic witch-hunting of student activists murdered a shinning light; NANS Lagos blows hot and makes demands from Governor Sanwo-Olu”.
Report says the student activist and critic of LASU management was killed on Wednesday near the school campus.
Nurudeen, who was supposed to have graduated from the Department of Educational Management, Faculty of Education since 2019/2020 session, died a few hours after appearing before a disciplinary panel set up to probe his alleged involvement in admission racketeering and possession of official documents.
The university neither issued Omomeewa’s certificate to him nor mobilise him for National Youth Service because of his case with the disciplinary panel. The cause of Alowonle’s death has been a subject of controversy and an autopsy is expected to be carried out on his corpse.
NANS threatened that as the umbrella body of the student’s body in Lagos State they can’t afford to let the alleged murder get swept under the carpet.
