Nigerian students in Ukraine has said they had no idea what to do as the row between Ukraine and Russia continues.
Speaking to CNN Africa, a medical student Anjola-Oluwa Ero Philips says he and about 70 other Nigerians are stranded with no way to leave Lviv which is close to the border of Poland.
“There have not been explosions here but earlier in the day we heard the siren tests. Flights are cancelled and it’s hard to get any taxis or Uber. Everybody is at the ATM trying to withdraw cash but banks are not opening. Money is running out at the ATM and you can’t do app transactions anymore.
Based on what I have heard from the Indian citizens, their government is trying to get free transit for them to the Polish border,”
Ero-Philips added further that;
“No one has any idea what to do. We have been reaching out to the Nigerian embassy since last month”
