The killing of over 22 travellers, including four students with many injured in Jos by suspected hoodlums forced the management of UNIJOS to suspend the ongoing second-semester examination for the 2019/2020 academic session.
The evacuation exercise began on Sunday morning, the Special Assistant to Ogun State Governor on Students’ Affairs, Azeez Adeyemi, said.
Adeyemi told newsmen that Governor Dapo Abiodun provided five buses and security escorts to ensure the safe return of the stranded students.
“We have provided five buses and security escorts to bring our children back home safely.
“No indigene of this State will be allowed to suffer or be abandoned irrespective of their political or religious affiliation. They are Ogun people and it is our duty to ensure their safety”, Adeyemi said.
NAOSS President, Oluwagbemileke Ogunrombi, said the state officials have already evacuated about 80 students and some corps members who are indigenes of the State from the troubled areas
