The Nigeria High Commission in Canada says it is set to evacuate Nigerians stranded in that country due to coronavirus travel restrictions.
In a statement on Monday, the mission said it had received no fewer than 200 requests for evacuation.
To this end, it stated that a Boeing 777 aircraft operated by Air Peace had been specially arranged to fly the intending returnees home this Thursday.
The high commission noted that it could be the only special evacuation flight for Nigerian nationals stranded in Canada due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It said the plane would pick the prospective passengers from two locations in Canada, namely Toronto and Alberta.
