Grave Concern Over Stranded Nigerians In Ukraine

— As FG Plans Evacuation

Worried Nigerians have expressed concern over their stranded relatives in Ukraine.

This is even as the Federal Government of Nigeria arranges for a special flight operation to evacuate her citizens from Ukraine in view of the escalating tension between that country and Russia.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, in an exclusive interview with NTA said the Nigerian Embassy in Kiev has been contacted to arrange those wishing to return home from other areas, including Donestk and Luhensk.

The minister assured Nigerians that the ministry is following the event since the beginning and promised to do everything for the safety of Nigerians in Ukraine, particularly students.

The Russians have started attacking military installation in Ukraine amidst worries and accusations by the western world of imminent invasion which Vladimir Putin repeatedly denied.
