The Nigerian government has expressed deep concern over the dire humanitarian situation in Sudan and empathize with the entire civilian population in the country, including the Nigerian students.

In a joint statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and
Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, the Ministers noted with concern that some of these students are trying to find their way to contiguous borders of either Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia or Chad on their own.

The statement adds that in line with the directive,
the National Emergency
Management Agency (NEMA), National Commission for Refugees, Migrants
and Internally Displaced Persons is working very closely with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Nigerian Missions in the countries bordering Sudan to immediately evacuate the students and other affected Nigerian

The Ministers, therefore, urge parents to advise their wards that while
concerted efforts are being made to evacuate them, they students should endeavour to remain calm and maintain constant communication with officials of the
Nigerian Embassy in Sudan.

They can reach the
Embassy Officials on the following telephone numbers, +2348035866773,
+249961956284, +2348063636862, +249961956274, +2349066663493.

Furthermore, they are also advised to guard against undertaking the treacherous
journey to the borders on their own, in view of the dangers involved.

The ministers emphasise that concrete plans are
underway, to deploy, very shortly, air transport to evacuate all stranded Nigerian
citizens through the identified safe transit areas back home to Nigeria in safety and dignity.
