Recall that on Monday, September 19, the aggrieved students also blocked the access roads to both the local and international terminals of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, leaving people stranded.

 
Nigerian students have vowed to block the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja and Kaduna-Abuja Expressway today Wednesday, September 21.
 
Members of the National Association of Nigerian Students made the vow while protesting against the lingering strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
 
Recall that on Monday, September 19, the aggrieved students also blocked the access roads to both the local and international terminals of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, leaving people stranded.
 
Reacting to plans by the students to block the Kaduna-Abuja expressway, the Kaduna state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement released said while the state government was not depriving citizens of the right to express discontent, public security and safety must always be the foremost consideration.
 
The statement read
 
“The Kaduna State Government wishes to remind members of the public that any move to block the Kaduna-Abuja Road (or any routes) to express dissatisfaction, is unacceptable and a prelude to the breakdown of law and order.

The danger of barricading a strategic route like the Kaduna-Abuja Road is better appreciated within the context of ongoing security operations covering the route, and other areas of interest. Citizens are therefore strongly advised against participating in such processions.”
 
Meanwhile the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, Faithful Hope-Ivbaze, said security operatives have been deployed to Abuja airport to maintain law and order during the protest by the students.
