Over 200 Courageous Nigerians Safely Rescued from Conflict-Ridden Sudan

205 Nigerians Evacuated from War-Torn Sudan

No fewer than 205 Nigerians stranded have been evacuated from the war-torn Sudan, the Federal Government said on Friday.

Onboard the Tarco Airline flight, the returnees arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, exactly at 12:15 pm, where they were received by officials of various government agencies.

Among the officials present to receive the evacuees were representatives from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons, the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), and the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).

The group of returnees consisted of 160 adults and 45 infants, making a total of 205 evacuees. This marks the 17th batch of returnees from Sudan, and it is believed to be the final set of evacuations. With this latest batch, the total number of returnees from Sudan now stands at 2,858.

The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) confirmed this development in a statement on their Twitter handle, adding that the evacuees had been provided with necessary support, including profiling, meals, and transportation. Most of the evacuees are headed to Kano, Katsina, Kaduna, and Borno states.

Since the onset of the war in Sudan, efforts have been made by the Nigerian government to repatriate stranded Nigerians in the country. The successful evacuation of these 205 individuals is another achievement in this ongoing mission.
