Three hundred and six more Nigerians affected by the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war arrived in the country from Budapest, Hungary on Sunday morning.
This makes it the fourth batch of evacuees to return home since the rescue operation began on Friday. And the total figure of Nigerian safety back home has risen to 1,081.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the last evacuees landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at 12:35 am.
The stranded Nigerians were successfully evacuated following the intervention of the Federal Government with the cooperation of governments of countries neighbouring Ukraine.
Welcoming the returnees on behalf of the Federal Government, Director-General, National Emergency Management Agency, Mr Mustapha Ahmed said that apart from the $100 allowance to each returnee, a one-night accommodation arrangement had been made for them to rest before continuing their journey to their homes, while those whose relatives had come for them were free to go home.
