The Federal Government on Sunday said it has successfully evacuated all Nigerian fleeing the crisis in Sudan, saying no Nigerian life was lost in the course of the evacuation exercise.
However, Daily Trust gathered that some stranded Nigerians were left behind at Port Sudan on Saturday.
A source who would not want his name mentioned but is familiar with the situation in Port Sudan said there were still 92 students left behind.
He said some who have been outspoken about their situation in Sudan were not allowed to board the flight back home. The authorities have however denied this.

Janet Olisa and Dr. Nasir Sani-Gwarzo, for MFA and FMHADMSD respectively, the government said no stranded Nigerian is left behind in Sudan.
