first batch of 265 Nigerians repatriated from UAE Lands at Lagos
The first batch of 265 Nigerians repatriated from the United Arab Emirates, UAE, on Wednesday evening, arrived Nigeria through the Muritala Muhammed International Airports, Lagos.
The flight had earlier returned to the UAE after a woman went into labour midair.
A mild drama played out during the repatriation flight from Dubai as the aircraft had to make an air return 60 minutes into the flight, to disembark a mother who had delivered a baby on board.
The Emirates flight EK783, a Boeing 777-300 with registration A6-EGO initially left Dubai for Lagos at around 10 am but had to return because of the incident and restart the journey.
