Concerned by the recent attack unleashed on students of Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH), by suspected cult members, the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria has petitioned Governor Akinwumi Ambode of the state.
The petition which was signed by MSSN President, Lagos State Area Unit, Dr. Saheed Ashafa dated Wednesday, August 30 2017, sought for an investigation into the attack unleashed on some MSSN members in the institution.
Ashafa in the petition, copy of which was made available to DAILY POST, urged the governor to ensure that culprits of the attack were punished.
The petition titled, “Attack of members by Cultists”, read in part, “I hereby use this medium to report to your office that members of our prestigious organisation were attacked by cultists in their hostel on Monday.
“At about 9:20pm of the said day, the cultists came in their multitude to one of the hostels inhabited by our members in the pretext and with the claim of searching for a lost item.
“Upon entering, they attacked residents, our members and students of your prestigious institution. They were assaulted and battered with various weapons thereby inflicting on them various degrees of injuries that could lead to death.
“This attack which is suspected to be have been carried out by cultists is not the first on our calm and easygoing members.
“Being aware of your strive and stride towards ensuring a peaceful Lagos, we hereby urge your office to make investigations into this attack of our teeming members who have been peaceful and enjoining peaceful coexistence within and outside campus.”
