Students Ask Police Authority To Shutdown Lafarge Company Within 72hrs Over Alleged Funding of Terrorists

Our attention has been drawn to a news flying around and as widely reported on notable media platforms that the  United States justice department in Brooklyn has fined Lafarge, a French cement company, with $778 million after pleading guilty to making payments to terrorists to retain its operations in Syria.

Information at our disposal further reveals this as the first time a company will be pleading  guilty to charges of providing material support to a terrorist organization. According to further media info within our reach , it affirms that the LAFARGE  company admitted to the act at the federal court in Brooklyn, the United States and agreed to pay $778 million in forfeiture and fines, as part of the plea agreement.

Considering the above the Coalition of Nigerian Students Under the aegis of National Association of Nigerian Students NANS, Progressive Students Movement PSM NIG, and National Association Of Ogun  State Students NAOSS, are calling on necessary security agents to as a matter of urgency shutdown the Nigeria Branch of Lafarge situated in Ogun State Nigeria , pending the outcome of investigations, we are not unaware of the increasing level of insecurity in the axis housing the company (EWEKORO) ranging from kidnapping, to armed robbery among others , not too long ago Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have reportedly arrested a suspected Boko Haram leader in Abeokuta, Ogun state. 

We are particularly concerned about our students in the axis housing the company( EWEKORO) because the same axis is housing an higher institution (DS ADEGBENRO ICT POLY) with thousands of students, in lieu of this we are demanding for an immediate shutdown of Lafarge company within the next 72hours from this release , pending the time investigation will be carried out considering how much risk , danger and harm sponsoring a terrorist group could do to Ogun  state and Nigeria at large. We appreciate the company for the jobs created however the security of our constituents remains our top priority.

We are concerned about the fact ISIS presence have been confirmed in Nigeria, yet the news have exposed a LAFARGE branch in another country fully sponsoring terrorist  group,  If the company is not  shut down at the expiration of our 72hours ultimatum Nigeria students will be forced to move in our thousands to shut the company down as Nigerian Students in that axis have been living under high apprehension since the news of LAFARGE sponsoring terrorist came out . For LAFARGE  SA and LAFARGE Syria to  have agreed and pledged guilty to funding and supporting  a notorious terrorist group, what assurance do we have that the company in Nigeria is not doing same, hence the need for an immediate shutdown and investigation. 

It is extremely important for security agents to rise up to this task because an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, we are not unaware that the said terrorists have sophisticated weapons that security agents in Nigeria do not have , this simply means they may decide to go on rampage anytime even as the 2023 general elections is fast approaching. 

It is very disheartening that at a time when companies such as DANGOTE have been busy supporting security agents with mobility and logistics basically to combat crimes across the country , another is busy sponsoring terrorists, it is very disturbing and calls for immediate action .

Finally we are imploring the commissioner for industry, SA security, DSS, Nigeria Army and Police to as a matter of urgency swing into action in investigating the company in line with the building our future together agenda of prince Dapo Abiodun Executive governor of Ogun state . It should be specifically noted that we shall be mobilizing our battalions in our thousands to shutdown LAFARGE CEMENT In Ogun State if the company is not honorably shutdown in the next 72 hours .
