Killer Policeman Must be Arrested and Prosecuted – NANS

Killer Policeman Must be Arrested and Prosecuted – NANS:


The Senate of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has demanded the immediate arrest and prosecution of the policeman who yesterday in Katsina shot and killed Umar Aliyu of the Hassan Usman Polytechnic.

In a statement signed by spokesman Okoye Robinson Chibuzo, NANS condemned the act in strong terms and called on the National Human Rights Commission to investigate the incident and the killings of other students which now number 30, as a matter of urgency.

“We can’t understand what led to the killing of a harmless student by the same persons whose responsibility is to secure his life and property,” the statement said. “This act of barbarism is a total breach of the fundamental right to life of Umar Aliyu as enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and can’t be taken as this is a threat to the lives and security of the Nigerian students.” The students also called on the Inspector General of police to sack the Commissioner of the Katsina State Police Command and the DPO in charge [of the unit], or face “total war” which will be declared against the police for the brutal killing of Nigerian students.

NANS commiserated with the family of Umar Aliyu and the entire students of Kastina for the great loss of one of their future leaders whose life was shortened by a “blood sucking” policeman.
