By Miriam Humbe, Abuja

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has dispatched assorted food items approved for the Nigerian Embassy in Sudan to cater for the stranded Nigerians that are waiting airlift in Port Sudan back home from war torn Sudan.

A statement signed on Thursday by NEMA’s Head of Press Unit, Manzo Ezekiel said the gesture was to cushion the effects of food scarcity.

Director General of NEMA, Mustapha Habib Ahmed said the food items were meant to cater for the Nigerian citizens while the evacuation underway was being strengthened.

The items consisted of 100 bags of 10 kg rice, 50 bags of 10kg beans, 10 cartons of seasoning, 50 cartons of spaghetti and 5 bags of iodized salt.

The items were airlifted on Thursday to Port Sudan by Tarco Aviation.

Taco Aviation had earlier brought 123 stranded Nigerians to Abuja.

The latest arrival had brought the total number of evacuated stranded Nigerians to 2,246 in 12 different flights.

NEMA said that the evacuation exercise was continuing with efforts being made to engage some Nigerian airlines to strengthen airlift of Nigerian citizens that were willing and had been profiled to be transported back home as a result of the unfortunate conflict in Sudan.
