145 Nigerians stranded in Sudan return home

145 Nigerians who were stranded in Sudan have returned to the country.

The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission announced this via its Twitter handle on Friday.

According to NIDCOM, the returnees arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at about 12:45 pm, via Air Sudan.

All evacuees will now proceed on 14 days self-isolation as mandated by the Nigeria Center For Disease Control (NCDC) and the Federal Ministry of Health.

Their return comes just hours after another set of 167 Nigerians returned home from South Africa.

The Nigerians got stranded as a result of the lockdown occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic since March 28.

The affected Nigerians are those who came on grounds of doing business, students on research programs, and some that finished their courses, while others came on an official assignment.

The 167 Nigerians departed O.R. Tambo International Airport Johannesburg, South Africa for the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, where 45 passengers disembarked in Abuja, and thereafter the plane departed for Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos with 122 passengers.
