The Federal Government of Nigeria is planning for a special flight operation to evacuate its citizens from Ukraine.
The move was considered a result of the escalating tension between Ukraine and Russia.

The minister assured Nigerians that the ministry is following the event since the beginning and promised to do everything for the safety of Nigerians in Ukraine, particularly students.
