The students also condemned the attacks on the leadership of the various student groups involved in the planned protest allegedly by the police.
According to the Acting Coordinator of the Alliance of Nigerian Students against Neoliberal Attacks (ANSA), Sanyaolu Juwon, the arrest and eventual release of the Presidents of Tai Solarin University Students’ Union and National Universities Education Students’ Association (NUESA), Sanni Ramon and Ewetola AbdulRamon by a team of policemen from Jaba Police Station, Ijebu-Ode, at the weekend, was condemnable and unjust.Sanyaolu added that the students were resolute and would not be discouraged from going ahead with the protest.
“We are aware the state government is trying to do everything possible to frustrate this rally but we are resolute and committed. Parts of their plan is to arrest some of us and to infiltrate our ranks with hoodlums who would hijack the protest and attack us.
“We promise Nigerians that the protest shall be peaceful and that no amount of stampede can force us to go violent. We did it in Oyo State, and in spite of Governor Ajimobi’s outbursts and threat to arrest some of us, we remained peaceful. So this time, it will not be different.
