Ukraine – Russia War: Second Batch of Nigerian Evacuees Arrive Abuja

The Second Batch of Nigerian Evacuees from Ukraine has arrived in Abuja.

An Air Peace flight carrying the 183 evacuees, (180 adults and three children) touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, at exactly 6:35 pm on Friday.

The evacuation exercise follows the attack by Russia on Ukraine which has left scores of people killed and many displaced.

Over 5,000 Nigerians, majority of whom are students studying in Ukraine have been caught up in the conflict.

Many of them have reportedly fled to neighbouring countries to Ukraine including Hungary, Poland and Romania.

Earlier today, the first batch of Nigerian evacuees, numbering 416 arrived in the country from Romania, aboard Max Air.
