PHOTOS: Nigerian embassy evacuates Ukraine-based citizens from Polish borders


The Nigerian Embassy in Warsaw, the capital of Poland, has begun the evacuation of Ukraine-based Nigerians from Polish borders.


According to information made available, the evacuation was led by C.O. Ugwu, Nigeria’s ambassador to Poland.


The evacuation was said to have commenced on February 26.


Several of the evacuees reportedly said they were received by embassy staff at the borders, and thereafter moved to Warsaw.


They were also said to have commended the embassy for the good treatment, feeding, and accommodation provided for them.


Following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, many residents, including Nigerians, have been forced to flee to neighbouring countries.


The federal government had said its diplomatic mission received Nigerians in Hungary, Poland and Romania.


Meanwhile, Geoffrey Onyeama, minister of foreign affairs, had said evacuation of citizens to Nigeria may begin on Wednesday.
