    • The Academic Staff Union of Universities of the University of Benin on Thursday said the abduction of four lecturers and eleven students of the institution has the capacity to cripple the entire education system which is already traumatised.

      It also said it was a sign that the nation’s security apparatus had failed.

      ASUU in a statement jointly signed by its Chairman, Prof. Monday Omoregie, and the secretary, Dr. Fabian Amaechina, called on security agencies to warm up to the responsibility of securing Nigerians because national development is impossible without security.

      It said the unseriousness with which the security apparatus is treating matters of national security is distressing and such must not be allowed to continue.

      “It is a virus that needs to be exterminated because of the negative multiplier effect it can have on education and the larger development of the nation. If researches and field works cannot go on because of the challenge of insecurity, then the educational sector and the whole concept of national development will be on borrowed time,” said ASUU.

      The union stated further that apart from having the negative potential of lowering the quality of manpower produced by the universities, “the larger picture is that it has the capacity the crippling the entire educational system. The larger consequences will be utterly grievous”.

      The union, however, recognised the role played by Ikpesi community, which helped in the rescue of the abducted students and their lecturers.

      “We salute the community’s courage and patriotism and recommend their action to other besieged communities. Their reaction only proves that we are stronger together. Perhaps, but for their role and support, it would have been a tale of woes,” it said.
