About one hundred and twenty Lebanese nationals were this Sunday evacuated from Nigeria through the murtala Mohammed international airport Lagos .
The Lebanese were airlifted at about 3.00pm following several hours of delay as they were denied the checking formalities initially since the officials at the Lagos airport did not get the permission granting their evacuation from Nigeria.
The nationals were said to have arrived the murtala Mohammed international airport Lagos as early as 5am but were not allowed any form of facilitation or checking since there was no documented approval.
However according to officials at the airport, the permission for their evacuation was recieved past mid day and the checking formalities were carried out as they were airlifted by middle East airline at about 3.00pm
