43 arrived Ekiti on Friday. Over 150 were also received in Edo and 65 in Akwa Ibom.
The Ekiti evacuees, who are students of tertiary institutions in Borno State, arrived the Government House, Ado-Ekiti at about 3.30 a.m. in three buses.
The students, who narrated their ordeal to reporters, hailed Governor Kayode Fayemi for coming to their rescue by sending buses to convey them from Maiduguri.
Officials of the Government House were on hand to attend to the needs of the evacuees.
