Due to the incessant kidnap of students in the Northern parts of Nigeria, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has urged the Federal Government to declare the culprit bandits as terrorists and they should be sanctioned appropriately.
According to NANS, anyone with propensity to kidnap and kill the students in large number should be declared as terrorists to any nation. They went on to advice the FG to take the necessary steps to heighten security in schools.
NANS went on to make an important announcement, revealing that the organisation has resolved its factional crisis, which sprang up recently with the emergence of a splinter group, led by Mr Abdumajid Oyeniyi that was challenging the leadership of the national president, Sunday Asefon.

The NANS President, Asefon, who addressed journalists in Ado Ekiti, recalled meeting with prominent Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmed Gumi over kidnap of school children in the Northern region of the country.
According to the president, “The government should beef up security in schools. It is our belief that students should be going to schools with the assurance that they will be secured.
“I have called on the federal government that they should declare these bandits abducting students in the northwest and north central as terrorists.”
