The plans of Kogi State tertiary institutions students to embark on a peaceful ┬ádemonstration may have hit a snag as the state police command has intimated the students’ leadership that it is incapable of assuring their safety.
The state commissioner of police, Wilson Inalegwu, who told the students this evening of the development, advised them against going ahead as it might lead to break down of law and order in Lokoja, the state capital.
In their reactions, leadership of the students have expressed disappointment, describing the excuse given by the police chief as a show of incompetency and deliberate efforts to frustrate them.
He said the students’ leadership were still not deterred by the setback, as they are more determined than ever to ensure they show their dissatisfaction with government insensitivity to the plight of students in the state.
According to the students, while government and its agents have politicised the situation, students, who are futures of the state and country have continued to suffer the brunt.
An obviously disappointed Kogi State University Student, who is also looking forward to the peaceful demonstration, noted that he suspects a deliberate connivance between the police and the state government to deny them opportunity of public display of their anger.
He said they are however undaunted as their dissatisfaction would still be made public in any way possible.
