About 40 Buses evacuating Nigerian students and non-student from Sudan following the war outbreak, were stopped in the middle of the Sahara, and the drivers refused to continue the journey, saying they were not paid.
In a video obtained by AbaCityBlog, the students and non-students were lamenting, adding that the drivers of the buses stopped them in the middle of nowhere, with reasons that they haven’t been paid the agreed amount from the Nigerian authority.
Meanwhile, the Federal Government, on Wednesday, in Abuja said it has spent $1.2m to deploy 40 buses to evacuate at least 2,400 stranded Nigerians out of Sudan.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, disclosed this to State House correspondents shortly after this week’s Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by the President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Council Chambers of Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

Question is, Where is the $1.2 million dollars Federal Government said they have spent on evacuating the students if the drivers said they weren’t paid?
