The federal government has successfully evacuated the first batch of Nigerians stuck abroad amid the coronavirus pandemic.
On Wednesday, 256 Nigerians arrived in Lagos from Dubai on an Emirates Airline flight.
The Emirates flight is expected to be the first of at least two other flights scheduled to evacuate Nigerians within the next few days.
