Buhari Orders Repatriation Of Stranded Nigerians In Russia As Ambode Rescues 50

The governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode on Saturday came to the rescue of 50 Nigerians who were stranded in Russia. Recall that newsmen had reported that over 50 Nigerians were helpless and were sleeping around in the streets of Russia after their agents whom
they paid over one million naira failed to provide them jobs as promised.

Some of them told newsmen that they used the official Fan IDs to come to Russia with the promise of finding work or even playing professional football themselves.

Others said they came to watch World Cup matches but got stranded when their return plane tickets were cancelled by bogus travel agencies that booked them.

In the same vein, President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the immediate repatriation of Nigerians stranded in Russia.

The President ordered the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama and the Minister of State, Aviation, Hadi Sirika to commence the process of repatriating Nigerians who travelled to Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup but got stranded after the competition.

In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu explained that the football fans got stranded in the country following the activities of some unscrupulous travel agents who cancelled their return tickets and abandoned them to their fate.
