THE NEWS IN DETAIL

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command said on Tuesday, April 16, that it would investigate the alleged attack and counterattack launched by the factional leaders of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANs).

The attack, BONA NAIJA learnt, resulted in serious injury to at least three members of NANS who were believed to be affiliated with the organisation. One of the victims is currently undergoing surgery in an Abuja hospital.

In a video shared by the media aide of the Kwara State governor, Ibraheem Abdulateef, on his X page on Tuesday, April 16, some people with cutlasses ran into a peaceful setting of some group of people and attacked them.

They also destroyed an 18-seater bus with the pictures and name of one of NANS’ factional leaders, Chibuzo Obi Pedro, who was tagged as the organisation’s president on the bus.

The attack, which happened on Monday, April 15, in Area 8, Abuja, took place shortly after the factional president, Pedro, left a meeting they held regarding their inauguration.

Calling on the attention of the Police Force public relations officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Abdulateef wrote:

“ Hello esteemed PPRO @Princemoye1, Are you aware of the attacks and counter-attacks factional NANS leaders have been launching against one another in Abuja? A young man from Kwara was caught in the latest at Zone 8 and was butchered to near death in broad daylight. It is crazy.”

“The Force should invite the leadership for questioning before we have a further breach of law and order and a possible loss of life. This is criminality on the loose.”
