The federal government of Nigeria has called for a ceasefire in the ongoing conflict in Sudan to allow countries to evacuate their citizens.


"The non-adherence of the warring parties to numerous international calls for a ceasefire has worsened the plight of civilians and made it impossible to embark on their evacuation," said Francisca Omoyuli, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Alongside Chad's transition president, Idriss D├ęby-Itno, President Muhammadu Buhari criticized the situation in Sudan, which he previously described as inappropriate and sad.

At least 300 people have died and nearly 3,200 others have been injured in the fighting in Khartoum, western Darfur and other countries, according to Ahmed Al-Mandhari of the World Health Organization.

Nigeria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it is in contact with the Sudanese authorities and has made an official request for permission to evacuate Nigerian students and other members of the Nigerian community who may wish to depart the country through the Nigerian Embassy in Khartoum .
