On Tuesday, the insurgents released a video where he was gruesomely murdered in cold blood. Daciya Dalep killed by an eight year-old Boko Haram/ISWAP boy

Dalep, a native of Jing in Pankshin Local Government Area of Plateau, was kidnapped on Jan. 9 by the Boko Haram terrorists, while on his way to Maiduguri to resume school.

In a peaceful protest in Jos, capital of Plateau state, home state of the slain student on Friday, the student body called for more protection for students studying in various tertiary institutions in the North-East.

Prince Godwin Bedir, Secretary-General, NANS Zone C, urged the Federal Government to ensure the safety of students and indeed, all Nigerians resident in the North-East.

“We are in pains to address the world today on the unfortunate and painful execution of one of us, Mr Daciya Dalep.

“While we are regaining consciousness from the last year’s execution of two natives of Kumbun in Mangu Local Government Area, two others from Kazuk and Amper respectively, in Kanke Local Government and other Plateau indigenes.

“We call on Gov. Simon Lalong and National Assembly members from Plateau to come together as a matter of urgency to interface with the Federal Government and the Borno Government.
