Russia-Ukraine War: 31 Evacuees From Romania Arrive In Nigeria

The seventh batch of Nigerian evacuees from Ukraine arrived Monday morning at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

They arrived aboard a Turkish airline and they were airlifted from Romania where they had fled following the war in Ukraine.

The evacuees numbering 31 arrived at 6:30 am on Monday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja and were received by officials of the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) and the Refugee Commission.

This is the second set of evacuees from Romania following the Russia invasion of Ukraine which has left many displaced.

A representative of the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs told Channels Television that the reason the government used a commercial flight was because of their number.
