Heavy Gunshots As NANS Convention In Abuja Turns Bloody, Many Injured by State001: 6:47am On Dec 04, 2020
Heavy gunshots on Thursday rocked the ongoing national convention of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), in Abuja.

CAMPUS GIST reports that the convention is holding at the Old Parade ground, Area 10, Garki, Abuja.

The student leaders are meeting to elect a new set of executives to pilot the affairs of the Union for the next one year.

The outgoing president, who was recently suspended, Danielson Bamidele Akpan, held on to the office for over two years refusing to hand over power.

Trouble was said to have started on Thursday as a coordinator of the NANS from one of the zones with faction, brought in armed men as accreditation was on.

Upon arrival, CAMPUS GIST gathered that the armed suspected cultists engaged the men of the Department of State Security (DSS) on ground in gun battle.

Some of the DSS officials were said to have taken to their heels and retreated as they were almost outnumbered by the armed cultists.

Over 20 persons were said to have been injured, with one in danger zone taken to the nearest hospital. Normalcy later retired past 11 midnight as the student leaders returned to the venue to continue the election.

It was gathered that security was reinforced as soldiers from Abuja had to be sent to provide security in addition to the DSS officials on ground.

An official of the NANS Convention Planning Committee (CPC), Adamu Kabir, in a tweet sighted by CAMPUS GIST Thursday night, described the gun battle as “normal” in NANS.

“This sporadic shooting is an annual ritual that must be observed in order to test the ruggedity of candidates contesting for NANS presidency,” Kabir, better knowns as Karoll, said.

Another student leader on the convention ground, who spoke to CAMPUS GIST on the condition of anonymity, attributed the shootings to interest from various groups.

He accused the ruling All Progressives Congress and the presidency of sponsoring a particular presidential candidate and providing him security cover to intimidate others.

The student leader also accused a second term governor of the ruling party from the South West region, of trying to hijack the processes with huge sum of money over his interest on a presidential candidate (names withheld).

Unfortunately we may continue hearing of gun men attack now because the morale of our police men is down at the moment. The country as a whole isn't safe right now.

Should we blame the government for this also?

We have a country where the typical citizen feels no sense of civil responsibility. Yet we expect our leaders to be responsible as if our leaders aren't part of us.

Every corner, gender and age group of this country is filled with so called citizens who put personal interest above public interest (if public interest exists in their hearts at all) yet we expect something good to come out of this country.

In a typical Nigerian workplace, the kind of resistance, hate and blackmail you'll get for speaking or acting against bribery and corruption is beyond description. If you persist, your life may go for it. That's how bad this country is.

The problem of this country is we the people. Our leaders are only a reflection of who we are. We celebrate religious and tribal affiliations above competence and honesty. Many people will call you a bastard for even speaking against your kinsman even when he's clearly wrong.

Our leaders are the monsters we made.

No wonder the old cargoes are not ready to transfer power to the youths.

They know what Nigerian youths are capable of doing.
