Another batch of 301 Nigerians stranded in Ukraine arrived at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja on Saturday.

The evacuees were said to have arrived from Budapest, Hungary at 8:50pm via AzmanAir.

A post by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission(NIDCOM) on its official twitter handle   reads: “The evacuation Flight AZM2351 @AzmanAir Nigerians from Budapest, Hungary arrive at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Int’l Airport today, Saturday, 12h March 2022 at 8:50 PM local time, the majority of which are the #SumyStudents from Ukraine.

“Returnees are getting $100 transport fare from the Federal Government of Nigeria, free SIM cards loaded with 5,000 Naira airtime to allow them to reach their family members courtesy of a partnership between NiDCOM and Mtn,  and other relief packages.”

NiDCOM had earlier on Saturday announced that  300 evacuees would be arriving in the country at about 5:30 but the returnees eventually arrived by 8:50. Reasons for the delay were not stated by the commission.
