NANS Issues 24 Hours Ultimatum For Release Of 13 UNILAG Students

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called for the immediate release of 13 students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) being held in Kirikiri Maximum Prison, Lagos.
NANS’ President, Mr Chinonso Obasi, said on Monday in Abuja in a statement that the union would embark on a protest to the Kirikiri Prison if the 13 students were not freed within 24 hours.
A Special Offences Mobile Court had on April 1 remanded the 13 UNILAG students in Kirikiri Prisons, pending their bail application.
They were accused of engaging in unlawful invasion of Television Continental in Lagos.

The students were arraigned on a two-count charge of unlawful invasion and disruption of activities at the media organisation, but all pleaded not guilty to the offences.
“After a painstaking review of the circumstances surrounding the ruling, we have resolved to demand and hereby demand the unconditional release of these students within 24 hours,” NANS’ President was quoted saying.
