The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM)  has confirmed the evacuation of two hundred and ninety-two Nigerians from the United Arab Emirates, taking the number of evacuees from the Arab nation to 2,933.

The agency disclosed this in a tweet via its official handle on Wednesday explaining that the evacuees arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at 02:30 pm on board an Emirates flight.

Although NIDCOM said the evacuees had tested negative to COVID-19, they would be undergoing a mandatory 14-day self-isolation, in line with the guidelines issued by the Federal Government.

The latest evacuation from the UAE comes two days after 288 more Nigerians returned from the country. On Sunday, NIDCOM said 327 Nigerians returned from the United Kingdom.
