Majority of the detained students were from Fathi university, a university in Turkey alleged to be a terrorist school . The Fathi University was among the 2099 schools, dormitories and universities shut down in the wake of the July 15 failed coup in the country.
According to a relative of one of the students detained, the students passports were seized immediately they entered the Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul
“Upon arrival at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul, they were all escorted to a room and their passport confiscated by Turkish police,” the relative was quoted as saying.
“When they enquired why they were clamped in a dirty room, the police said they are students of a terrorist organisation. They offered to transfer them to government schools but on the condition that we will pay same fees as private universities.”
Abike Dabiri, senior special assistant to the president on foreign affairs and diaspora, said she was not aware of the development.
“Just hearing from you, if we do get the report, we will react,” she said
Also ,the Turkish government has dissociated itself from any school bearing the country’s name in Nigeria, adding that while the country had schools in other countries, it had none in Nigeria.
