Nigerian Students Stranded In Ukraine

Nigerian students in Ukraine have said they feel left alone by the Federal government as they do not know what to do.
Anjola-Oluwa Ero-Phillips, a Nigerian medical student in Ukraine who spoke to CNN Africa said he and around 70 other Nigerian students are stranded with no way to legally leave Lviv in the west of the country, close to the border with Poland.
Lviv is around 300 miles from Ukraine capital Kyiv where explosions were heard in the early hours of today after Russian forces entered the country.
“There have not been explosions here but earlier in the day we heard the siren tests. Flights are cancelled and it’s hard to get any taxis or Uber.
Everybody is at the ATM trying to withdraw cash but banks are not opening.
Money is running out at the ATM and you can’t do app transactions anymore.
Based on what I have heard from the Indian citizens, their government is trying to get free transit for them to the Polish border,”
”No one has any idea what to do. We have been reaching out to the Nigerian embassy since last month”
Statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs says evacuation of Nigerians will commence as soon as the Airports in Ukraine reopen.
