No fewer than 41 of the 107 Jigawa indigenes studying medicine in Sudan safely returned to the state on Monday after their evacuation by the Federal Government from the conflict-ridden country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the students arrived at the Dutse International Airport at 1.55 pm aboard Overland Airline.


NAN also reports that the airport terminal witnessed a large turnout of parents, as well as relatives of the returnees, welcoming them with happiness.


Dr Abubakar Sani, the Executive Secretary, Jigawa Islamic Education Bureau (IEB), who received the returnees on behalf of the state’s Commissioner of Education, Dr Lawan Danzomo, expressed happiness that none of the students was either injured or fell sick.

Malam Abdullahi Yunusa, the Director-General of the Jigawa Education Monitoring Bureau (SEMU), advised the returnees not to be deterred by their return home without completing their studies.
