Following the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike, 11 undergraduates of University of Maiduguri lost their lives in an accident on Tuesday on their way to Damaturu from Maiduguri.

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) made this known on Friday while expressing sadness over their demise.

The National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Mr Best Okereafor, gave the condolence message in a statement issued in Enugu.

He stated that “NANS mourns the fallen Nigerian students and in same vain attribute the demise to the ongoing Academic Staff Unions of Universities strike.

“NANS believes that if the strike was not ongoing; the students would have been in school, studying.

“NANS is calling on the Federal Government to save our future and consider the souls of these fallen innocent Nigerian students often told that they are the leaders of tomorrow. Can we lead in grave?

“In as much as we believe in the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, NANS is on this sad note, calling on Federal Government to make students happy by meeting the demands of the striking ASUU and Colleges of Education lecturers without further delay.”

According to him, ASUU should not politicise the industrial action but consider the lives of Nigerian students by shifting grounds.
