According to SaharaReporters, the Lagos State Area Unit of the Muslim Students' Society of Nigeria, MSSN, has lamented the death of 10 students within the last four days.

The student body recalled the incident of the death of eight Muslim students in a bus at Badagry axis of the state on Saturday and two other students who were confirmed dead when a truck had an accident on Tuesday around Ojodu-Berger.

The President of MSSNLagos, Miftahudeen Thanni, in his reaction said the trend must be halted by both the government and non-stated actors.

In a statement obtained by SaharaReporters, he said, “We want to unequivocally state that these are avoidable and preventable occurrences looking at the circumstances surrounding the tragic incidents claiming the lives of our future leaders.

"The first bothers on the allegedly bullied and tortured Dowen College Student in Lekki. The second tragic incident occurred in Badagry where students numbering about eight were found dead in a parked vehicle.

"The last straw that broke the camel's back is the killing of students of Ojodu Grammar School in Ojodu. This dastardly occurrence could have been prevented if law enforcement agents did the needful by enforcing the roadworthiness law by tracking vehicles without break, instead of running after them on roads used by members of the public to the extent that lives of citizens were lost unduly.

"The organisation hereby recommends the installation of Closed Circuit Television cameras in all dormitories, classrooms, and premises of both day and boarding of private and public schools. This will reveal valuable information about all happenings in the school.

"Law enforcement agents should always patrol secondary schools and their surroundings with special attention on boarding schools.

"Private boarding schools' approval must be minimal and strict; it should be premised on quality, due process, and rule of law."

The student leader also suggested the ban of Vehicle Inspection Officers and other law enforcement agents from arresting near schools.
