SWITZERLAND, MAY 20 – No fewer than 292 Nigerians stranded in Saudi Arabia arrived in Abuja on Tuesday.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, confirmed this on Wednesday via his Twitter handle.

It was gathered that the flight arrived late on Tuesday at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.

He said a chunk of the repatriated nationals were nursing mothers and children, adding that they have been camped in hotels to observe the 14-day compulsory quarantine supervised by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

“We received 292 evacuees stranded in Saudi Arabia yesterday.

The Saudi Government transported them to Abuja.

A large number are nursing mothers and children and they are all comfortably settled in hotels under the mandatory 14 days quarantine,” he wrote.
