The Air Peace flight carrying over 270 Nigerian students from the Aswan Airport in Egypt landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, while the NAF C-130H jet conveying about 80 persons touched down moments later.

After over a week of assurances by the Federal Government, the Nigerian evacuees were finally airlifted home, escaping the deadly conflict in Sudan which started on the 15th of April and has led to the death of hundreds while thousands of others have suffered injuries.

The evacuees arrived at the airport amid a heavy security presence, including mostly wingmen of the Nigerian Air Force and the

Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Farouk, the Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission NIDCOM, Abike Dabiri-Erewa; and the Director General of the National Management Emergency Agency NEMA, Ahmed Mustapha, were at the airport to receive the students.

Farouk said the returnees would be given 100,000 Naira each to enable them to settle in, adding that a full press briefing on the issues surrounding the evacuation had been scheduled for today, while

Four aircraft are expected to arrive today conveying almost 400 persons.
