Nigerians Evacuated From UK Arrive In Abuja
Written by admin on May 9, 2020
Some Nigerians who were stranded in the United Kingdom following the COVID-19 lockdown have arrived in Abuja.
They reportedly arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at about 7:54 pm on Friday, hours after an initial flight from the UK had landed in Lagos State.
The returning Nigerians will, thereafter, be quarantined for 14 days before being allowed to leave for their various destinations, in line with guidelines of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control.
The process is required to ensure the coronavirus-status of every returnee is ascertained.
This comes some days after the Federal Government successfully evacuated the first batch of Nigerians stuck abroad amid the coronavirus pandemic.
