LAGOS — The United States of America evacuated more than 340 Americans from Nigeria on Saturday, the U.S. Embassy said.
“Today, over 340 Americans left Lagos for the United States thanks to another superb effort by the team at the U.S. Consulate General and our Nigerian partners.
“The passengers departed on a chartered Omni Air International flight bound for Dulles Airport, near Washington, DC. We wish all aboard a smooth flight as they head home to rejoin family and friends. Stay Safe and Healthy!,” the statement reads.
Other Americans have been evacuated from Nigeria as coronavirus cases in the country continue to increase.
