He explained that they were evacuated in order to prevent the death of indigenes and residents of Abuja in Jos, adding that another round of evacuation would be made on Aug. 21.

This, he said is to ensure they 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 and achieved major result.

“Although, the previous government has made people to believe that the FCT is just the city at the expense of the over 868 villages in remote areas.

“Many people should understand that FCT indigenous students studying in Jos are from various local communities that make up the entire FCT.”

He further stated that the students were stranded in Plateau State due to the curfew imposed on some local government areas by the state government to curtail the security situation in the state.
