Men of the Department of State Security Service, have allegedly arrested the National Public Relations Officer of the National Association Of Nigerian Students who is also Aide to Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State, Azeez Adeyemi, after guns and ammunition were found in a bus belonging to Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY).
The three-day national convention of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) was on Thursday disrupted by violence.
About 20 members of the association, who gathered at the old parade ground in
Abuja for the convention, sustained wounds from gunshots and machete after
thugs loyal to a factional coordinator of the association in Zone D (Southwest)
began attacking delegates.
The thugs, numbering over 20, stormed the venue with dangerous weapons while
accreditation of Students Union Government (SUG) Presidents under NANS Zone
B and Zone D was in progress.
The security agency also arrested other occupiers of the bus who are students’
leaders from Ogun State.
“He was caught in a student union bus belonging to Moshood Abiola Polytechnic.
The bus was full of guns and ammunition. I heard they have been released but
the union bus loaded with ammunition is still in the custody of the DSS.”
