The National Association of Nigerians Students (NANS) headquarters has temporarily relocated to Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti state over the killing of two students of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti

Comrade Yusuf Farouk NANS National Secretary, said the relocation is to ensure that justice is served on the killers of the two students.


Recall that FUOYE Students last Tuesday staged a violent protest in Oye Ekiti over incessant power outage in the town.

The protesting students clashed with the entourage of Ekiti State first lady Erelu Fayemi while on an empowerment and advocacy tour to the the local government.

The clash led to the death of two students while several others injured and many vehicles vandalised by the protesting students.

According to a statement signed and issued by its National Secretary, Comrade Yusuf Farouk, the students’ body called on all affiliate unions, elected and active members of the organization in Kogi, Ondo, Ekiti and Osun to mobilise in solidarity with FUOYE students.
The statement noted that the students’ body National Secretariat would be relocated to Ado-Ekiti on Sunday with a meeting fixed for FUOYE SUG executives and NANS/JCC Ekiti leadership and stakeholders.

The two days showdown will end with a World Press Conference and preceded by mother of all procession to the Government House on Tuesday.

But the Ekiti State Police Command says it will stop any attempt by the students to cause unnecessary crisis in the state through protest under any guise.

The command warned students to shun unlawful assembly.

In a statement issued by the command’s spokesman, Caleb Ikechukwu, the police said it has discovered through intelligence gathering that a group under the auspices of ‘ex-graduates’ , who are not currently students of any higher Institutions are presently moving into the state with the sole aim of fomenting and precipitating trouble over the FUOYE crisis.
