The second batch of Nigerians fleeing the insurrection in Sudan are expected to arrive Nigeria today from Egypt, where they got stranded.
Recall that the first batch of the evacuees, numbering 376, arrived Nigeria on Wednesday night after spending seven days at the Arqeen border of Khartoum, Sudan.
Reports say that the plane, which airlifted 282 evacuees, landed in Nigeria at 11:35 pm on Wednesday, while NAF C130 arrived 11:55 pm with 94 evacuees.
However, the Nigerian Ambassador to Egypt, Nura Rimi, said that Ninety-five Nigerian students from Borno State have been moved from Wadi Halfa to the Egyptian side of the border. He said they are to be evacuated by the Azman Aircraft together with other students already processed, adding that the rest of the students waiting at the two border crossings Wadi Halfa and Arqeen will be evacuated today barring any hitches.
