Two hundred and forty-seven Nigerians who were stranded in Malaysia and Thailand as a result of the suspension of international flight travels have arrived Nigeria through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Mr Gabriel Odu, the Head of Media and Public Relations Unit of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), said in a statement in Abuja that the returnees arrived at the airport at about 11p.m. on Saturday night.

They arrived Nigeria through a chartered Airpeace flight APK-7813.
