Why Nigerian Students Were Arrested – The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) President, Aruna Kadiri has visited Turkey over the arrest of some Nigerian students.

The said Nigerian students numbering over 50 were allegedly arrested on the order of the government. The detained Nigerians are mainly students of Fathi University, one of the 2,099 schools shut down by the Turkish government for links with Fethullah Gulen, the alleged mastermind of the failed July 15, 2016 coup in the country.

Kadiri in his visit to Turkey demanded for clarification on the arrest of the affected Nigerian students.

After series of meeting, NANS president and others, were informed that after the failed coup in Turkey the Government decided to shut down 15 Universities suspected to be owned by the opposition group who masterminded the failed coup and some Nigerian students in the schools were affected.

The closure affected several nationalities including Nigerians schooling in Turkey. However, the Government has absolved all the students into various schools of their choice without any additional charges.

NANS in its statement however debunked the reports that 50 Nigerian students were arrested in Turkey.

“Funny enough the story of the over 50 Nigerian students arrested is like a home 50 Nigerian students arrested is like a home video to most of them. They insisted that nothing of such ever happened. In fact, the Turkish Ambassador to Nigeria confirmed that only four post-graduate students (PhD) were arrested for questioning after which the Turkish government have decided to depot them.”

Upon NANS President intervention,  both Ambassador Hakan Çakıl, and the host government the few students arrested have been released and allowed to resume their normal schooling.

“As we speak, the affected students are back to school,” NANS statement read in parts.
