The Delta State Government has evacuated about 600 students of the state origin studying in Borno State.

Besides, other indigenes of the state who are not students have also been evacuated from Borno.

The students were safely brought back to the state on Thursday last week in a convoy of luxury buses dispatched to Borno to evacuate them.

No less than 10 of the buses were dispatched to bring back the indigenes of the state in an exercise coordinated by the commissioner in charge of the Bureau for Special Duties, Dr. Tony Nwaka.
