The Federal Ministry of Education has directed all Federal Government Colleges (FGCs) in Abuja to shutdown and immediately evacuate students.
The directive was given as a result of threat to the lives, security and well-being of the students.
FGCs had been asked to vacate their students from the campus latest on Wednesday, July 27 while others will close on July 26.
The spokesperson for the ministry, Ben Goong, confirmed to journalists in Abuja on Monday that the ministry had ordered the evacuation of students from the schools.
Mr Goong said the decision was due to rising insecurity and threat to the lives and wellbeing of the students.
