The first batch of Nigerian evacuees from Poland due to the Russia-Ukraine war arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, today (Friday, March 4, 2022).

Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM boss, Abudu Dabiri- Erewa who disclosed this via Twitter said the evacuees arrived the airport at 7:11 a.m. on Friday via Max Air.
