Britain Planning Flights to Evacuate Citizens from Nigeria



The British Embassy is planning flights to evacuate staff, family members and willing citizens from Nigeria, the ambassador said Thursday.

” We are exploring a range of options for sending staff and dependents home, as there are no commercial options available, said Catriona Laing.

“We are also exploring flight options for any British nationals who remain in Nigeria and wish to return to the United Kingdom.”

She also stated that the missions in Abuja and Lagos will remain open carrying out essential work and consular activities  to British citizens in Nigeria.

The ambassador also revealed that the mission is reducing staff and dependants at the high commission in Nigeria.
