According to him, “I will like the entire Nigerian Students, who bestowed on me the mandate of leading them, which I have never betrayed or derailed in this struggle, that my life is under threat by the men of the State Security Service (SSS)and if anything happens to me, the SSS should be held responsible.
He said, “With today’s event, it is obvious that men of the State Security Service (SSS) are after my life. It further confirms that the last attack on my resident was done by the SSS.
Adding that, “Today I saw them with my naked eyes,I identified two, among them out of the ten of them that came and they were well armed. I think it was only those two that know me and was lucky they didn’t see me, as I managed to escape, so that I can address the press in case anything happens to me.
Liveschoolnews gathered that they came to the occasion venue organized by the National Association of Plateau Students, which was about to commence at the Plateau State Polytechni,c Jos, and were asking after the NANS president
Miaphen further stated that, “I want to advise the SSS to leave Nigerian Students alone and channel their energy towards solving the numerous security issues affecting the Nigerian nation, other than interfering in students activities.
