Sudan: 800 New Evacuees Expected On Sunday

The Federal Government says 800 Nigerian evacuees are expected to arrive in Nigeria from Aswan, Egypt on Sunday.

The Director-General, National Emergency Management Agency, Mustapha Ahmed, stated this after receiving the third batch of 131 evacuees from Port Sudan in Abuja.

The Tarco airline plane B737-300 that conveyed the third batch of returnees touched down at 1.45pm on Saturday.

Speaking at the reception for the returnees, Ahmed stated, “We have aircraft on the ground as we speak; two are in Aswan and our people are on their way to the airport. So, hopefully, they will take off tomorrow morning and by tomorrow afternoon or evening, we will receive a large batch of almost 800 students.

“For Port Sudan, we will continue with the evacuation. Tarco is going back. Azman Air is going to do a back-to-back trip because of its 400-seater capacity and we have already started engaging Air Peace to go back because of the 274-seater capacity.”
