The evacuated Nigerians departed the US onboard an Ethiopian airline flight and arrived at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos on Saturday, July 4.

According the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission NIDCOM, all the evacuees tested negative for COVID-19 and will now proceed into the mandatory 14 days self-isolation.
