The Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN) was cofounded in 1954 by Abdurrahaman Sahid, Babs Fafunwa, Tajudeen Aromashodun, Lateef Adegbite in Lagos.

Adegbite, its first national president, became known for his defense of Sharia law.[1][2]

Following the Chibok schoolgirl kidnapping, the President of the Muslim Students Society of Nigeria, Malam Abdulazeez Folayemi, called on Muslims to fast and pray "in order to seek Allah's intervention in this precarious time."[3]
