A THIRD batch of Nigerians evacuated from Ukraine have arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
According to a tweet by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), the evacuees landed in Abuja at 11:50pm on Friday.
Nigerians were flown in from Budapest, Hungary, which shares borders with Ukraine.
Many Nigerians had fled to neighbouring countries following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine which began on February 24.
Meanwhile, the latest evacuation flight makes it the third to have delivered Nigerians back to the country since the operations began.
