University of Jos Students Union Government SUG on Thursday raised alarm over the continuous killings of students of the University by hoodlums.
This alarm is coming following the killing again of a 100 level student of the University who was allegedly pulled out out of a tricycle and stabbed to death around Bauchi road in Jos north LGA of the State capital.
Our correspondent gathered that the student boarded a tricycle from the Permanent site of the University to the main campus, on the road he was pulled out and clubbed to death.
As at the time of filling this report his remains was soaked in his blood at the scene of the heinous act.
Speaking while addressing newsmen in Jos, the Students Union Government SUG President University of Jos Comrade Danladi Joshua Adankala alleged that despite the development there was no known form of genuine commitment demonstrated by the Government in addressing this ugly trend in the State.
According to him, they cried out but unfortunately it ended just on the walls of their social media account and platform because there are mere students who’s lives mean nothing to the Government.
“At the risk of being misunderstood, we dare to state that just within few hours of the unfortunate incident of 14th August, the security agencies combed the area and arrested more than 20 suspects as contained in the press statement issued by the Nigerian Police Force, Plateau State Command.
This means the security agencies can be effective but unfortunately, the innocent students of the University of Jos do not deserve such prompt attention and energy.”
They further stressed “Our tears for justice has generated nothing else than more pains, hurts, fears, sorrows and endless lamentations. If we really have a government that can respond swiftly to the Rukuba Road incident, one wonders what is happening to us the Students of the University of Jos. This is no doubt an affirmation of the saying that “all animals are not equal”,
According to the students Federal and the State Government should as a matter of urgent priority expand the scope of transportation services available to students and staff both on and off campus adding that this Will enable them to boycott the services of Keke and bike riders most of whom they suspect are among our attackers and killers.
