NANS condemns killing of 96 persons in Plateau

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has condemned the barbaric killing of 96 persons and burning of 221 houses in Plateau on Christmas eve, Dec. 24.

The President of NANS, Mr Pedro Obi, in a statement in Enugu on Wednesday, said the colossal killings and destruction had left a trail of sorrow, devastation and anguish in its wake.

He expressed condolences to the families and communities affected by the gruesome and heart-wrenching incidents that occurred on the “Black” Christmas Eve in Plateau State.

“The heinous attacks, characterized by the wanton destruction and loss of innocent lives, are an affront to humanity and a stark reminder of the urgent need for stronger security measures to safeguard Nigerians.

“NANS calls on the relevant authorities to take swift and decisive action to bring the perpetrators of these heinous crimes to justice.

“It is disheartening that such acts of violence continue to occur, despite the efforts of the government and security agencies to maintain peace and security in the country,” he said.

Obi noted that the lives lost in the attacks are not mere statistics; they represented those who had dreams, aspirations and hopes for a better future.

He said NANS stands in solidarity with the affected communities, offering their unreserved support and prayers during this difficult time.
