More of the 301 stranded Nigerians have returned from Ukraine, fleeing death, dread, and suffering. 

The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) reported the escapees arrived in Nigeria by flight AZM2351 of Azman Air (a privately-owned Nigerian airline founded in 2010). They arrived on Saturday night through Budapest, Hungary.

The Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission confirmed their arrival on Saturday on Twitter, also saying that the majority of the returnees are the #SumyStudents from Ukraine.

They also said, “Returnees are getting $100 transport fare from the Federal Government of Nigeria, and free SIM cards loaded with 5,000 naira airtime to allow them to reach their family members courtesy of a partnership between NiDCOM and MTN.’

As Russia’s takeover of the once-soviet-union country is taking more time than political and war analysts would think is normal, people have praised foreign weapons that were given to Ukraine and the help of mercenaries.

In fact, it is very possible that foreign soldiers (especially from the West) have been covertly assigned to aid Ukraine.

The flight landed at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja at 8.50 p.m., ridding its occupants of the fear of Putin’s nukes.

It is not funny that the arrivals came back to Boko Haram’s bullets, bombs, and rapes. Some of the evacuees were students. Does this mean there is no escape? 

An alleged 2.5 million Ukrainians have fled their country since Feb. 24, the day the Russian adventure to own Ukraine began. The Russians have famously continued to punch Ukraine from the air, land, and sea; no doubt at the expense of lives and property.

The Nigerian government signed off on 8.5 million dollars to make this possible. There are allegedly about five thousand Nigerians running from the war zone to neighbouring countries like Poland and Hungary.
