May. 30, 2020

At least 268 Nigerians stranded in China have been evacuated to Abuja.
The flight that conveyed the evacuees landed at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport on Saturday afternoon.
Disclosing this in a tweet, the Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission,  Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the returnees would be proceeding on compulsory 14 days quarantine as stipulated by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
Some of the nationals had faced difficulties as authorities in Guangzhou enforced strict measures to forestall another wave of covid-19 outbreak as the virus is suspected to be imported by travellers from African countries.
They were reportedly evicted from their apartments and hotels following their alleged refusal to go for the mandatory quarantine imposed by the Guangdong Provincial authorities.
But the Chinese authorities said they subsequently provided free hotel accommodations for 207 Nigerians.
The government said the beneficiaries included Nigerians who were evicted from their hotels and apartments by officials in the wake of the compulsory quarantine and testing of foreigners for coronavirus by the Guangzhou Municipal Authorities.
