The buses conveying Nigerians from the war ravaged Sudan has continued the quest to rescue them to a safer place in Egypt.
Why The Buses Stopped Moving Initially
The buses evacuating Nigerian students and others were said to have stopped refusing to continue their movement out of the country because the drivers were not paid.
In a viral video circulated Thursday afternoon on popular micro-blogging platform Twitter, some students were seeing crying out in the video shared by one Dr. Ahmad.
The Nigerians could not understand why the evacuation process had been stalled despite the fact that the Nigerian government had intervened and raised moneys for the task.
