Planes Packed At Airport Were Burnt. Evacuating Nigerian Students Risky Now – Abike Dabiri-Erewa Gives Update On Sudan Crisis



The Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa has said while the Nigerian Mission in Sudan and the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), have put in place arrangements to evacuate Nigerian students and other Nigerian citizens stranded in Sudan, the tensed situation makes it gravely risky and impossible for any flights at this point in time.

According to her, Aircrafts parked at the Airport in the country were burnt on Thursday morning.

In a statement by Gabriel Odu of Media, Public Relations and Protocols Unit, NIDCOM, Dabiri-Erewa, noted that Humanitarian Groups are seeking ways of getting food, water and medicals across to people.

She therefore appealed to the fighting Parties to consider the Juba Peace Agreement enunciated by Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), as fundamental mechanism for the restoration of peace and tranquility in the country.
