274 Nigerians fleeing the crisis in Sudan have arrived in Abuja today in the first batch of a government-assisted evacuation exercise.
The escapees arrived on a plane owned by Air Peace, which took the refugees from Aswan in Egypt to Abuja (the capital of Nigeria).
They arrived almost midnight on Wednesday.
The evacuation, which began last Wednesday, faced some logistical and diplomatic challenges. A total of 5,500 Nigerians are expected to be evacuated. They were taken by bus from Sudan to Egypt and from there they are to be taken to Nigeria.
According to the Chairman of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, there are no Nigerians left in Khartoum.
