Evacuate Nigerians in South Sudan - Senate Tells Federal Government

The Nigerian Senate has called the attention of the Federal Government to the safety of Nigerians embroiled in the South Sudan conflict. 

The Senate has raised an alarm about the plight of Nigerians trapped in the South Sudan bloody crisis that has claimed lives in recent times.
The motion was spearheaded by Bayelsa Senator, Ben Murray Bruce who called on the government to take necessary steps to evacuate Nigerians currently living there.

The decision followed a Point of Order by the Deputy Spokesman of the Senate, Sen. Ben Bruce, at plenary.

Bruce while raising the point of order said that reports reaching him indicated that Nigerians in Sudan were the only nationals still left in the country in spite of the increasing tension.

According to him, rather than being evacuated by the authorities, Nigerians in South Sudan are being subjected to question and answer sessions and subsequently dismissed.

"As we speak, in the Hallowed Chamber, the fate of Nigerians in South Sudan is unknown and there are no indications that they have been evacuated," he said.

Bruce urged the Senate to summon the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, to explain why Nigerians were allegedly abandoned in the war-torn country according to the Vanguard.

The lawmaker also urged the senate to mandate the Committee on Diaspora and Non-Governmental Organisations, to carry out holistic investigation into what transpired between Nigerians at the Nigerian Embassy in the country.

In his remarks, the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, said the relevant authorities would be communicated appropriately to ensure that the lives of Nigerians in South Sudan were not in danger.
