Ekiti State Government has evacuated twenty eight students who are Ekiti indigenes from Jos, Plateau state following the security challenges that occured in the State in recent time.
The students were evacuated in an operation carried out
with the support of security agencies who provided adequate security cover for the journey from Jos to Ado-Ekiti as they were delighted to be reunited with family members alive and well.
On hearing of the plight of the stranded young Ekiti indigenes, Governor Fayemi spared no cost in facilitating the logistics and security required for their safe evacuation in line with the government’s commitment to the welfare, safety, and security of all Ekiti indigenes at home and abroad.
The students appreciated the Governor for coming to their aid when they felt all hope was lost, because of the suspension of academic activities, the curfew imposed, and general state of insecurity.
The Special Assistant to the Governor on Youth and Student Matters, Mr. Moses Ademiloye, who led the students back to the state said the state Government remains committed to safety, peace, and security of Ekiti indigenes outside the State
