Leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students says it has met with renowned Islamic scholar, Sheik Ahmed Gumi, in Kaduna, to seek the release of students abducted by bandits across the country.
NANS stated that it discussed with Sheik Gumi actions and efforts to ensure safety and security of Nigerian students.
Scores of students are currently being held in captivity across the country by bandits demanding huge amounts of money as ransom.
NANS National President, Sunday Asefon, in a statement on Monday, said the students’ body would not leave any stone unturned until all schools are safe.
The statement read, “We will continue to engage and dialogue with stakeholders to ensure school safety.
“We extend our commitment to continuous dialogue for the release of students in captivity and all round efforts to ensure schools become safer so that our students can be free from the fear and trauma of kidnapping.”
