BREAKING: FG evacuates 241 Nigerians from China


The Federal Government of Nigeria on Monday, 24 August 2020, began the evacuation of about 241 Nigerians who had been trapped in China.

The President of Nigerians in Diaspora Organization (East China), Elijah Odii, disclosed these in a statement from the Nigerian Embassy in Beijing, China titled “Re: Evacuation of Nigerians from the People’s Republic of China”.

The statement read, “Further to the press release of June 4 and July 24, 2020, and communications with prospective evacuees, on the above subject matter, the Embassy wishes to inform that the scheduled date of departure from Guangzhou to Lagos via Air Peace Flight is today, August 24, 2020”.

He thereby advised prospective evacuees to conclude all arrangements, including taking COVID–19 tests and securing necessary exit visas against the date.

Odii said there is a possibility that not all those currently at the airport will be allowed to board as some are yet to complete checking in.
