Following the unrest in Jos, Plateau, over 279 students who are natives and residents of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, schooling in various institutions in Jos, have been evacuated by the Abuja Original Youths Empowerment Organisation (AOIYEO), in collaboration with National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).

Isaac David, President of AOIYEO, disclosed this at a news conference on Friday in Abuja. 

According to him, the evacuation of the students was necessary to forestall the death of indigenes and residents of Abuja schooling in Jos.

Mr David said that all the buses sent to convey the students from their various schools arrived Abuja safely.

He said another round of evacuation would be made on August 21, to ensure that all natives and residents of Abuja were brought back home, pending when normalcy returns to Jos.

“As FCT indigenous people, we have to carry out our civic responsibilities as indigenous organisation. 

With the little resources at our disposal, we achieved major results.

“Our citizens studying in Plateau state were stranded in the area as a result of the curfew imposed on some local government areas by the state government.

“We closely monitored the situation and collaborated with the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) to ensure the safe evacuation of our citizens,” he said.
