The German Mission in Nigeria has said it will evacuate its nationals that are interested in leaving Nigeria over rising cases of coronavirus disease in the country.
Countries like France and Israel have already evacuated some of their citizens from Nigeria.
The Federal Government has restricted flights from Germany and some countries considered as high-risk coronavirus spots before it closed all international airport.
The German Mission in Nigeria says it is in the process of ascertaining the number of compatriots still in the country who intend to return to Germany asking them to fill certain forms on its website for the purpose.
It says : “Due to the extraordinary circumstances with regard to COVID-19, temporary entry restrictions were decided for Germany and international air traffic to and from Nigeria until April 23.
“Some compatriots and their family members were able to leave Nigeria before the above measures were introduced.
“The German embassy in Abuja and the German consulate general in Lagos want to determine as reliably as possible the number of German compatriots and their family members who are still in Nigeria and are interested in returning to Germany.”
