The federal government says 160 women claiming to be Nigerians in war-torn Sudan have no passports to fly back to the country.
In a press briefing on Sunday, Mustapha Ahmed, director general of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), said the agency was being careful not to evacuate non-Nigerians.
