Nigerians stranded in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic are on their way home.
They are returning aboard an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787 aircraft under the special flight arrangements by the Federal Government for nationals stranded abroad.
In line with the government’s pre-departure infection prevention control guidelines, temperature checks were conducted on the passengers by a special medical team.
The plane departed the Newark International Airport, New Jersey, yesterday around 8:20 p.m. local time (1:20 a.m. in Nigeria today).
It is expected to arrive at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, around noon today.
