Reactions; Nigerian Government Admits That Igbos Were Asked To Come Down From Buses In Sudan, But Resolved

The Nigerian government under President Muhammadu Buhari has admitted that some nationals, who turned out to be Igbo, were asked to come down from evacuation buses in Sudan, noting that the issue had been resolved.

The government meanwhile earlies denied claims that the country’s embassy in Khartoum, the capital of war-torn Sudan, refused to evacuate Nigerians who are of the Igbo ethnic group.

Beadysworld had on Monday reported that some stranded Nigerians in warring Sudan accused officials of the Nigerian embassy in the evacuation exercise of discriminating against the Igbo.

In a viral video, seen, a Nigerian of Igbo descent was seen lamenting the level of discrimination against Igbos in a foreign land to the extent that after entry into evacuation buses, they were allegedly asked to come down in Sudan.

He had claimed that Nigerian authorities evacuated stranded Nigerians in war-torn Sudan by the State of Origin and left Igbos behind.

The man in the viral video stated that they were asked to come down from the bus and asked other Nigerian tribes to board, which conveyed other stranded Nigerians from other ethnic groups on Saturday and Sunday to Egypt.

The young man in the video had however appealed to wealthy Igbo men to come to their aide.
However, the Nigerian government denied the allegations, describing the account as false.
The Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Francisca Omayuli, on Wednesday, urged the general public to disregard the allegation.
Omayuli said that it had been investigated, according to Daily Post, she, however, admitted that Igbo were asked to come down from evacuation buses but it wasn’t deliberate, she said that the issue had been resolved.

She said  More buses have been made available to accommodate every Nigerian national in Sudan who indicated interest to be evacuated

You admitted they were told to disembark and later resolved, what are you denying then?

    The Discriminations against the Igbo people in Nigeria and by the Nigerian government are not new news. They are kinds of tribalism, bias, stereotype, and racism against the Igbo people that will never end in the one Nigeria contraction.

    This Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Francisca Omayuli, just dug a deeper hole to sink this Jihadist APC Govt once and for all!!. This nitwit lady admitted that IGBO WERE ASKED TO COME DOWN FROM EVACUATION BUSES, but it was not deliberate. Maybe she should tell us Nigerians why it was only the IGBOS that was asked to get off the bus and for what reason?. May God hasten the expiry date of Nigeria..Amen.

    Why were they asked to get down from the bus to start with? Abike has shown many times on how much she hates the Igbos, so this is not a surprise. She’s been playing the hate card not from today. Have you heard her talking about Nigerians involved in a crime overseas? If the offender is an Igbo person, she will analyze it in a manner ĺike, an Igbo man was arrested for fraud in Canada with details of first and last names, but if the person happens to be Yoruba or other tribe, she will say, a Nigerian ŵas arrested in Canada, for fraud. There will be no details of names. I don’t know if she thinks we’re not paying attention

    • A serious govt would take exception to this utter madness: asking Nigerians of any or particular ethnic group to disembark, after boarding a vehicle. For what? Why was it not a fulani that was disembarked? Why an Igbo? Give us the reason.
      The lady official admitted it happened but the issue has been resolved. What issue? Who resolved it? How?
      We tell people Nigeria has no chance in hell to survive as a single nation but many don’t see the point yet. They’ll find out the hard way.
      End this fake nation now!

    • Hocus pocus by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Francisca Omayuli that failed to launch. All their lies will be exposed as it has begun since the 2023 elections. There will be no hiding place for all you liars and enemies of the people.


      I doubt if D’s woman went to even primary school. “Igbos were asked to come down from d buses, but it wasn’t deliberate” so what was it?

    • Nigeria. Same country; different rules even abroad. What I don’t understand though is that the Nigerian Foreign minister is Igbo. Were those who gave the order for Igbo folks to get down from the bus undermining the powers of the minister? 

      The question is why should that be.


      This is worse than diabolism, she said they were asked to come down and gave no reason, so what’s the denial about. And she is still keeping her job. Arrant nonsense

      Omo yibo and foolishness…the idiot is already thinking of how to make money from fools like him…if he’s asked to alight, possibly he’s committed a crime in Sudan n already a wanted crook…however are yibos Nigerians? Ipob should have sent buses to Sudan to evacuate the yibos….why ranting and crying? They must be bastards to board ‘zoo’ buses in the 1st place, useless congolese descendants!

      Waiting to hear what would be done to the perpetrators of this ethnic profiling against the Igbos, though I will not be surprised if they were given a pat on the back.
      Igbos, the endangered tribe in Nigeria, will one day be free.

      Dabiri’s ethnic profiling at work.

      Truth be said, the way we treat Igbos is not good, can we allow them go
    • Mrs Francisca Omayuli if it wasn’t deliberate was it accidental? If the answer is in the affirmative the incident should be recommended for Guinness Book of Records because such an ethnic based accidental selection must be extremely rare.
      I blame the Igbo students for obeying such a stupid order.


      Lol…………….It can only get worst under Tinubu

      What led to you telling igbos to come down that you later resolved? It’s obvious you are the one lying? I throway spit for this Buhari government
