FG is moving to withdraw Nigerian students from Sudan


Following the outbreak of hostilities between the Sudanese Army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), the Federal Government is making plans to evacuate Nigerian students in Sudan.

The ongoing conflict between the Sudanese Army and the RSF has resulted in deaths and devastation across the country.

Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), expressed worry about the fate of Nigerian students in the war-torn country.

According to a statement issued on Thursday by the NIDCOM’s Head of Media, Public Relations, and Protocols Unit, Gabriel Odu, the Commission has received a letter of solicitation from the National Association of Nigerian Students Sudan for possible evacuation of students, particularly those in Khartoum, Sudan’s capital.

The Nigerian mission in Sudan and other relevant agencies, according to NIDCOM, are discussing with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), which is in charge of emergency evacuations.

Dabiri-Erewa asked all Nigerian students in Sudan, as well as all Nigerians in Sudan, to be cautious and quiet.
