The federal government of Nigeria on Saturday listed four borders that are recommended for Nigerians trying to escape from war-hit Ukraine.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa gave the update in a video posted on her Twitter account amidst the ongoing clash between Russian and Ukrainian military forces.
According to her, there may be up to eight borders available but there are four which the government has recommended and would have officials waiting to receive Nigerians on the other end.
The listed boarders are Hrebenne-Rawa Ruska, Korczowa-Krakowiec, Medyka-Szeginie and Budomierz-Hurszew.
“For Nigerians in Ukraine trying to cross over to Poland, there are eight borders between Poland and Ukraine, four borders are recommended,” she said.
