The second batch of Nigerian evacuees from Ukraine has arrived in Abuja.

An Air Peace flight carrying the evacuees touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja at exactly 6:35 pm Friday.

The evacuation exercise follows the attack by Russia on Ukraine which has left scores of people killed and many displaced.

Over 5,000 Nigerians, majority of whom are students studying in Ukraine have been caught up in the conflict.
