In the early hours of Monday, a bus carrying 50 stranded Nigerians from Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, caught fire due to excessive heat from one of the vehicle’s tires.

The bus was part of the second batch of FGN evacuation and was heading to Port Sudan.

Fortunately, all passengers, including Dr. Hashim Idris Na’Allah, the chairman of the Nigerian Elders’ Forum in Sudan, escaped unhurt.

Forty of the passengers were later distributed to other buses evacuating the students, while the remaining passengers spent the night at an RSF checkpoint.

The RSF officials offered them cups of tea in the morning before they continued their journey.

Over 1000 Nigerians are being evacuated through the Port Sudan route due to difficulties faced in getting the first batch of evacuees across the Egypt borders.

The stranded Nigerians had spent five days at the borders as Egyptian officials denied them access into the country where flights were already waiting to airlift them to Nigeria.
