The Nigerian government has evacuated 172 more of its citizens from Uganda and Kenyan.
The returnees arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja earlier today (Wednesday) via Air Peace flight.
After some of the evacuees disembarked in Abuja, others moved on to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
They were evacuated due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has continued to ravage the world for months now.
