Another batch of stranded Nigerians return from America - NIDCOM

Another batch of three hundred stranded Nigerians have landed in Abuja from the United States.

The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), announced this on Saturday via Twitter.

The returnees arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 15:00pm via the Ethiopian Airlines.

According to NIDCOM, the evacuation is the fifth from the US since the Federal Government started flying Nigerians who were stranded as a result of the COVID-19 back home.

All the evacuees tested Negative to COVID-19 before boarding the flight but will also observe the mandatory 4-day self-isolation as mandated by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
