SSANU National President, Mohammed Haruna made this call after its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja over the weekend.

Haruna said allowing local security in the universities to carry guns would help all the established security agencies that are already overwhelmed with different security challenges in the country.

“We are here to deliberate on a wide range of issues. Topmost among those issues are the security of our members who work in the university environment,” he said.

“Our members can’t travel freely, they can’t move around with ease, anytime they do so, they get kidnapped. This is unacceptable!

“We are calling on the federal government to license our security men on campuses who are our members, train and re-train them from time to time and monitor them. By doing this, security challenges in our institutions will reduce.”

This comes a few hours after the students and workers of Greenfield University in Kaduna, regained their freedom from their abductors after paying N180 million and giving out 10 motorcycles as ransom.
