Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, has moved to evacuate students of Abia origin over insecurity challenges in Plateau State.
Ikpeazu, however, dispatched a team led by his Special Assistant on Students Affairs, Mr Chibuzo Ndom, to the University of Jos, Plateau State, to evacuate Abia students who are currently stranded as a result of the recent violence and subsequent closure of the institution.
This was disclosed in a release by the State Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu and issued to newsmen in Umuahia on Sunday.
According to the release, “the contingent from Abia which includes security personnel are expected to ensure the safe return of the over 200 students of Abia origin back to the state capital, Umuahia, where the evacuees will be welcomed by the Governor”.
Earlier, Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), a socio-cutural organization had asked governors of the southeast zone to immediately evacuate Igbo students from the University of Jos.
This is following the rising tension in Jos.
The apex youth group in Igbo land stressed that the urgency of the security situation in Jos led the Benue and Kogi state governors to evacuate their students in UNIJOS, hence the need for Southeast and South-south governors to immediately rescue and save the life of the Igbo students studying in the northern institution.
The Igboayaka O. Igboayaka led Ohanaeze Youth Council in a release, revealed that it was now obvious that the Fulani herdsmen had declared war against all other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria
Recall that Plateau state was plunged into a security crisis recently following the massacre of over 26 travellers on Saturday.
Some schools in the state have shut down following the incident pending when normalcy returns to the affected areas.
