 “Are also separate reports of Polish officials simply refusing” Nigerians entry into Poland from Ukraine and that a group of Nigerian students “having been repeatedly refused entry into Poland have concluded they have no choice but to travel again” across Ukraine and attempt to exit the country via the border with Hungary.

The presidency demanded that everyone should be treated with dignity and without favour, adding that all who flee a conflict situation have the same right to safe passage under UN Convention.

“While efforts to begin talks between Russia and Ukraine are underway, paramount on our minds is the safety and human rights of some four thousand Nigerian citizens and many others from friendly African nations today stranded in Ukraine,” added the statement.

”As a nation, we are proud of those educated in Kyiv and Kharkiv and other cities and centres of learning who have returned to Nigeria to perform great service for our nation and our people,” added the statement. “Without the generosity of spirit of the Ukrainian people that would never have been possible. We pray for those directly affected by this conflict. Nigeria, with our 200 million people, supports all and every diplomatic effort to bring this war to an end.”
