Enugu state Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has ordered the evacuation of 135 students of Enugu state origin from the University of Jos, amid the reported crisis in the school.
The state evacuation team led by the Special Assistant to the governor on students’ affairs, Chidi Ilogebe, disclosed that 37 evacuated students were safely returned to the state on Sunday night.
28 other students were conveyed to Abuja to join their families.
Others were taken to their various homes within Plateau state and it’s environs, as their parents requested.
The management of the university had suspended academic activities over the rising insecurity in the state.
On the 14th of August, travelers were killed along Rukuba road in Jos North local government Area of Plateau state by people said to be protesting killings by herdsmen in their community.
Since then, the fragile security situation on the Plateau has continued to worsen.
