Students ‘won’t be killed’

Social Share

A CLAIM BY EIGHT Nigerian students that they risked death by returning home has been rejected by the attorney general of their home state.

The AG of the oil-rich Delta State, Charles Ajuyah, told a news conference at the Island Inn Hotel that the eight would not be killed, imprisoned or harmed in any way.

“I need to state clearly there is no iota of truth in the allegations that they made,” he said. “They claim that if they return back to Nigeria they will be victimised, they would be killed. That is not Nigeria, that is not Delta State.”

The official called in reporters to try to clear the air on the controversy surrounding the dozens of Delta State students who arrived here last December to attend courses in tourism and agriculture. (MB)
