Muhammad Yusuf, ambassador of Sudan to Nigeria, on Thursday urged stranded Nigerians evacuated to return to his country after the war.

This is coming after hundreds of stranded Nigerians arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

The Informant247 gathered that the first batch, which is about 376 evacuees, arrived via military jet C13, adding that more evacuees are expected in coming days.

Yusuf, while welcoming the first batch of evacuees, told them to consider Sudan as their second country, while he assured that the situation in Khartoum is calming down.

The envoy also expressed optimism that the army will soon regain control of the whole territory, saying although the government had proposed another truce, there would be no negotiations between the army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

He added that the acceptance of truce is for only humanitarian purposes to enable people to get food, shelter, water and medicine.

He said: “I’m very happy to have these evacuees coming from Sudan safe, no life is lost. Nigerians are coming from their second country.

“I hope that things will be controlled and safety will be back. You can come back and continue your studies, and businesses.”

Yusuf said although the government had proposed another truce, there would be no negotiations between the army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

The acceptance of the truce, he explained, is for only humanitarian purposes to enable people to get food, shelter, water and medicine.
