Air Peace is transporting the evacuees things back to Nigeria who left Egypt without luggage.
Abba Nura Rimi, the ambassador of Nigeria to Egypt, verified this on Wednesday night to a journalist located in the Nigerian Sudan.
The evacuees’ luggage was left behind when an Air Force plane was sent to Egypt to fetch back Nigerians who had escaped crisis-ridden Sudan.
The choice was made so that the plane could carry additional evacuees.
Nigerians had been first denied access into Egypt due to visa concerns.
However, sources told Daily Trust that after the Nigerian security and intelligence community began using their contacts and connections with their Egyptian counterparts to remove some of the obstacles sabotaging Nigerian representatives’ efforts, the evacuees were finally allowed into Egypt.
On the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Security Adviser (NSA), retired Major General Babagana Monguno, got in touch with his Egyptian counterpart, Faiza Abou el-Naga, who made the evacuation process seamless, according to a very senior security source who spoke under the condition of anonymity in Abuja on Tuesday.

The source claimed that although the specifics of the arrangements were kept private, “this initiative, which was broached and commended by the Egyptian National Security Adviser (NSA), Faiza Abou el-Naga, and her Nigerian counterpart, General Monguno, has so far permitted a smooth movement across the border into Egypt.
“Faiza informed NSA Monguno that President el-Sisi had graciously granted Nigeria’s request, which he had made, and that he had also conveyed his best wishes to President Buhari. As a result, the NAF aircraft deployment and the Air Peace planes were to be permitted to move on with the evacuation plans.
“Conditions necessary for the evacuation plans included aircraft specifications and dates, aircraft capacity, and a firm guarantee that Nigerians would be informed once they crossed the border.
