COVID-19: 160 Nigerians Evacuated From U.S. Lands In Abuja, Moved Into Quarantine
The first batch of 160 Nigerians stranded in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic has arrived in Abuja and had been moved into quarantine.
A plane carrying the returnees arrived on Sunday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, had said the evacuees would be quarantined for 14 days before leaving for their respective destinations.
The government stationed five luxury buses and a coaster bus at the airport to move the returnees to isolation centres as soon as they disembark from the plane.
