Yesterday, the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS stormed the Turkish Embassy in Abuja for peaceful protest over the maltreatment of Nigerian students in Turkey.
The protest was peaceful just as stated earlier as NANS President, Comrade Aruna Kadiri sent a message to the Higher Commissioner (Ambassador), stating that they must not continue to toil with the lives of Nigerian students and be continually victimised and intimidated while abroad.
Aruna said, “We have over 50 of Nigerian students in Turkey that they claimed they are terrorists and locked in a room, after a failed coup.
“They are treating our students like animals and feel there is no one to speak for them. And we wish you safe trip by to your destination”, Aruna added.
However, news has been flying all over the country concerning the locking of Nigerian Student(s) in the Turkish Republic. Meanwhile the Nigerian government has given deaf ears on that. Thanks to NANS for their prolific concern as they made it to the embassy to let the government know that Nigerians abroad are Nigerians at home.
