Nigerian students under the umbrella of National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS have dared the Department of State Services, DSS not to prevent students from exercising their rights to protest. They described protests as a universally recognised human right.
The National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Giwa Temitope, was reacting to the statement made by the secret police that some politicians were mobilising student leaders for violent protest against the Federal Government over socioeconomic matters.
Last week, a group, Student Solidarity Group Against Fee Hike, revealed that it would protest against a fee hike at the University of Lagos on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.
The NANS spokesperson said, it is quite embarrassing that the DSS has derailed to become the propaganda arm of the Federal Government, thereby, raising false alarms and even interfering in affairs that do not in any way relate to their line of profession.
