Nigerian students caught in Sudan war begs FG for evacuation

Nigerian students stranded in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, have appealed to the Federal Government to facilitate their evacuation.

The students are living in fear as more residents flee, amid fighting that has killed more than 300 people, mostly civilians.

The Rapid Support Forces (RSF) said it will not sit down for talks with the Sudanese Army for a ceasefire ahead of Eid this weekend.

The war forced President Muhammadu Buhari’s aircraft to take a longer route while returning to the country from Saudi Arabia.

A statement by the National Association of Nigerian Students-Sudan (NANSS) charged the government to act urgently.

They said currently in Khartoum “constant gunfire, explosions and airstrike attacks dominate its vicinity and environs.”

The students revealed they have not had access to basic needs and have been “facing dangerous threats” since last week.

“We, hereby, write, soliciting the government’s intercession to send for an immediate evacuation of the students that are stuck in the centre of the ongoing war,” the statement added.
