    Published By:

    Nigerian students from Egypt who were flown back to Nigeria have described their experience, stating that some women were sexually harassed.

    One of the female student told journalists on arrival at the International Airport Abuja that they faced humiliation.

    “We spent all the money we had. We were so hungry and thirsty. They were harassing us sexually. There was no food, no water to drink. It got to a point we picked things from shops and ran away,” the returnee female student spoke of her excruciating experience while at the border.

    “Another female student told the BBC Hausa Service in an interview, that their legs were swollen due to long hours of stay in the buses.

    Speaking on his experience, a male student said the situation was so bad that they even had to pay money before they were allowed to urinate, and hoped the war would soon end to enable him go back to Sudan and complete just a semester to round up his programme.”

    Wakadaily gathered that the first batch of Nigerian evacuees students arrived Abuja on Wednesday evening, according to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Sadiya Farouq, Air Peace conveyed 282, NAF conveyed 96 evacuees.

    She added that the evacuees will receive dignity packs and 100,000 naira transportation fare supported by the Dangote Foundation. They will also receive N25,000 worth of call voucher and data bundle (1.5gb) from MTN

    Nigerian Government Admits That Igbos Were Asked To Come Down From Buses In Sudan

    In a viral video on Tuesday, a Nigerian man was seen lamenting the level of discrimination against Igbos in a foreign land to the extent that after entry into evacuation buses, they were allegedly asked to come down in Sudan.
    He added that Nigerian authorities evacuated stranded Nigerians in war-torn Sudan by state of Origin and left Igbos behind.

    Reacting, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Francisca Omayuli, described the report as false. She, however, admitted that Igbo were asked to come down from evacuation buses but it wasn’t deliberate.

    According to her: “More buses were made available to accommodate every Nigerian national in Sudan who indicated interest to be evacuated.
    “It is, therefore, surprising that such a misleading allegation could be levelled against officials of the Embassy who had worked tirelessly on the evacuation exercise.”
