Over 7000 People Trapped In Sudan Border
Over 7,000 Nationals including Nigerians are currently stranded at the Egyptian Border.
Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who disclosed the development on Friday, said the nationals, including Nigerians, are not being allowed to cross the border into Egypt since their arrival late Thursday evening.
She urged those concerned with passages and movement of persons and services along contiguous borders of Sudan to create a humane condition for the Nationals, including Nigerians, to have unfettered access to their various destinations.
Dabiri-Erewa said the Nigerian mission in Egypt has been working tirelessly on this as the Egyptian authorities are insisting on visas by fellow Africans to transit back to their countries.
She appealed to the Egyptian authorities to kindly allow the already traumatised travellers to transit to their final destinations in various countries in Africa.
Dabiri-Erewa, on Thursday, said the first batch of Nigerian evacuees are expected to arrive Nigeria from Egypt this Friday.
