FG Advises Nigerians Studying In Ukraine To Vacate East Region

   The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has advised Nigerian students studying in Eastern Ukraine to vacate the area due to violence and unrest in the region. Ambassador Abdulaziz Dankono, Under-Secretary in charge of Economy and Consular in the ministry, gave the advice today in an interview with NAN.

              He said the advice became necessary following the deteriorating security situation in the war-torn region, stating that the situation in the region is not getting better because of the continuous fight between the separatists and Ukrainian military.
He said the over 1000 students in that zone had been advised to leave, but 146 students are still left in the region. It will be recalled that 9 Nigerian students were kidnapped by the rebels last month, but luckily regained their freedom after some days.
