The impending war between Russia and Ukraine is now in full swing and stranded Nigerians in Ukriane have said they feel left alone by the Federal government as they do not know what to do.

Speaking to CNN Africa, Anjola-Oluwa Ero-Phillips, a Nigerian medical student in Ukraine, said he and around 70 other Nigerian students are stranded with no way to legally leave Lviv in the west of the country, close to the border with Poland.

In his words ;

“There have not been explosions here but earlier in the day we heard the siren tests. Flights are cancelled and it’s hard to get any taxis or Uber. Everybody is at the ATM trying to withdraw cash but banks are not opening. Money is running out at the ATM and you can’t do app transactions anymore.

Based on what I have heard from the Indian citizens, their government is trying to get free transit for them to the Polish border,”

”No one has any idea what to do. We have been reaching out to the Nigerian embassy since last month”
