The Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, has refused to comment on the Federal Government’s stand on the Russia-Ukraine crisis.
It was earlier reported that the biggest fear of the Ukrainians came to pass on Thursday, February 24, after Russian military invaded the country and deployed bombs.
Onyema had been accosted by some journalists at an event on Thursday, and was asked to comment on Nigeria’s stand on the impending full-blown war.
However, he simply laughed and walked away from the newsmen.
This comes in the wake of Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin’s threat that any country that tries to interfere in its war against Ukraine will face severe consequences greater than any faced in history.
The video of Onyema ‘fleeing’ to evade the question has stirred mixed reactions from Nigerians home and abroad, as they point out that Nigerian citizens are also trapped in Ukraine.
