The Nigerian Government has received 292 stranded Nigerians from Saudi Arabia, with a large number of them nursing mothers and children.
“We received 292 evacuees stranded in Saudi Arabia yesterday. The Saudi Government transported them to Abuja.
“A large number are nursing mothers and children, and they are all comfortably settled in hotels under the 14 days quarantine,” Onyeama twitted.
More Nigerians are expected to be evacuated soon following pledges from the Nigerian National Petroleum Coporation (NNPC) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to assist in subsequent evacuations. (NAN)
