270 stranded Nigerians to return from Egypt


Two hundred and seventy Nigerians stranded in Egypt will arrived the country today from Cairo. This is according to the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) in a tweet on its handle on Friday.

The agency said the evacuees who had tested negative to COVID-19, will arrive at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja by 6:00 pm Nigeria time. It also explained that there are two foreign nationals aboard the Egypt Air bringing the Nigerians homes. Their return comes exactly one week after eighty six Nigerians arrived the country from Sudan.

The Chairman of NIDCOM, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, disclosed this in a tweet on her handle where she said they arrived the country via Air Sudan. According to her, the returnees will go on a 14-day isolation, in line with the guidelines set by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) as well as the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.
