Coronavirus: UK Looking To Repatriate Citizens In Nigeria

In a statement issued by the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ms. Catriona Laing, the commission is deliberating the repatriation of willing citizens in Nigeria.

Ms. Laing stated that this development was occasioned by “the rapidly changing situation in the region and recent airport closures.”

She also stated that the commissione was looking to reduce the number of staff present on its premises, although, the commissions in both Lagos and Abuja will remain open for business.

The statement by the commission states, “Given the rapidly changing situation in the region, the recent airport closures and recognising that it has become more difficult to get out in case of need, we have taken the decision to reduce the number of UK (United Kingdom) staff and dependents from our High Commission.

“Our missions in both Abuja and Lagos will remain open, continuing to carry out essential work, including providing 24/7 consular assistance and support to the British nationals in Nigeria.

“We are exploring a range of options for sending staff and dependents home as there are no commercial options available.”
