The evacuees from Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, early Sunday..
The repatriation flight was conducted by a Nigerian airline, Azman Air.
The returnees, who tested negative for Covid-19 before departure, are expected to self-isolate for 14 days according to the protocol of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
They are also expected to take another Covid-19 test before rejoining the society.
