The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has condemned the attack on protesters of End SARS at the Lekki tollgate, Lagos State, on Tuesday night.
The union commiserated with the families of those who lost their loved ones in the attack.
The Chairman of ASUU in UNILAG, Dr. Dele Ashiru, in a statement released on Wednesday noted that only a vicious nation would kill its youths in their prime.
He wrote, “The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, the University of Lagos, UNILAG chapter, has condemned in very strong terms the killing of innocent and defenseless youths peacefully protesting against the impunity and recklessness of members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad”
“When a nation viciously and malevolently hacks down its youth in the most reprehensible manner it portends danger for the entire society and a recipe for anarchy. We commend the resilience and sense of patriotism of all the youths demanding a system change.”
“Our union, therefore, calls for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the masterminds of the perpetrators of this criminal act.”
“It is obvious that with this kind of carnage, Nigeria may have a long way to go in its struggle for social emancipation.”
