Tackle insecurity in universities now, ASUU tells FG

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi (FUAM) on Thursday called on the Federal Government to urgently save educational institutions from the grips of criminal elements.

Chairperson of ASUU-FUAM, Dr Simon Ejembi, said the call became necessary following the spate of insecurity in the country which continues to deteriorate every passing day.

Some students of FUAM were abducted on campus by gunmen a few days ago from a lecture hall where they were reading.

Ejembi said that the event added to the list of campuses and secondary schools premises that have been attacked in the country in recent times.

“The current trend of students and staff abduction can only suggest that there is a siege on the educational system which apparently targets a complete crippling of the major organ of national development and this should not be condoned by any responsible government.

“ASUU-FUAM condemns the recent attack and abduction of our students and the unchallenged siege in totality and in all ramification and call that the perpetrators of this dastardly acts must be urgently brought to book.

“We, therefore, call the powers that be, the relevant security agents and agencies to save this nation from total invasion by some elements inimical to the development of this great nation and from losing its sovereignty,” he stated.
