Recently, there has been much debate about the Federal Government of Nigeria’s plan to remove Nigerians who are now living in Sudan.
According to reports on Friday, many Nigerians in Sudan may not be able to leave the nation.
In a conversation with Daily Trust, a source close to the evacuation effort claimed that some Nigerians who were supposed to be evacuated had been left behind by the embassy staff.
The source claimed that the embassy staff members traveled to Cairo, the capital of Egypt, with their families.
Following the closure of Sudan’s airspace, planes carrying refugees from Sudan have been landing in Egypt and nearby nations.
The Nigerian government had prepared arrangements for the road evacuation of Nigerians from Sudan to Cairo, where they would connect with aircraft to return home.
After the warring factions in Sudan agreed to a three-day ceasefire, the Federal Government took the action.
However, on Friday, the evacuation effort was halted because officials, according to reports, left Sudan.
As a result, there was unrest at the Khartoum evacuation site.
According to reports, the demonstrators brutally beat bureau de change operator Ibrahim Abdallah while holding him hostage.
Abdallah was reportedly involved in bus provision in addition to receiving a monetary transfer intended to pay for the trip.
According to Daily Trust, Abdallah was overheard telling the platform in audio and video clips that the $250,000 given as a deposit had been used up.
He revealed that the balance has not yet been sent and that the officials had been unresponsive while approximately 25 buses that were supposed to transport other stranded Nigerians had since withdrew from the operation.
