Nigerians who were stranded in Sudan have started to leave the nation for Cairo, Egypt.
Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the CEO and chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NiDCOM, confirmed this on her Twitter page @abikedabiri.
The head of NiDCOM revealed that the students were placed on buses based on their states of origin. According to their states of origin, the pupils were loaded onto the buses for convenience, according to Dabiri-Erewa.
It was not yet clear the number of Nigerians that have moved so far, but the NiDCOM Chair added that two more busses from another location (El-Razy University) were now ready to also depart, emphasizing that the first set took off from International University for Africa.
A video posted by the NiDCOM boss, a student could be heard speaking in Hausa but translated by our correspondent that, “This is the first of vehicles from the town Sudan to Cairo and to Nigeria. Now they are entering vehicles. These vehicles are for Kaduna, Taraba And Yobe people.
“The other cars are for Katsina and Kano. They will be bringing out the vehicle from inside the park. All are Kano people waiting for their vehicles to come. This is what is happening presently in a town in Sudan.”
Finally, Dabiri-Erewa said, “Our next update, by God’s grace, will be when they arrive their location. Please put them in prayers.”
