Covid-19: Nigerian man stuck at Suvarnabhumi airport enters his THIRD month

A Facebook post reported on by the Thai media claimed that a stranded Nigerian tourist has been living at Bangkok's main airport since March.

 

He is now entering his third month at Suvarnabhumi and there appears no end in sight though international flights might resume in July.

 

"Rasta JarGae" said on Facebook that the man got stuck in the airport while in transit.

 

But there was a silver lining in the long wait to get home - the kindness of the Thai people.

 

He has been supplied with food, drinks and bedding and changes of clothes. But he said he could do with a change of diet from instant noodles as he is getting a sodium overload.

 

The story was liked 1,200 times with 600 shares, reported Manager who said that many posters likened the man's predicament to being locked up.

 

Thaivisa notes that by far the largest number of foreign nationals in Thai jails are in fact Nigerians.

Thought the same thing straight away, but hope this guy doesn't try to help with any works going on there, as he will get nicked for no work permit in the blink of an eye.

Good work by the airport staff to keep him feeling human.

That's always been the case----when I used to visit Klong Prem Prison BKK for 6 years they used to have a black board up where they would write the number and nationalities at that time........the only time the Nigerians were out numbered  was when a large building project was coming to a close......... lots of Cambodians would then fill the prison until deported.

Somebody has his covid status been determined yet yet?

Id recon he is OK after 3 months.

Some high rank Minister should order an exception

Let him into the country and give him room and board at a semi-secluded beach

bungalow. Would be a positive feel good story for Thailand!

I read an article that a significant number of Nigerians is stuck in Thailand.

And their caring government wants them to pay upfront 297,600 "Nigerian Naira" (about 760 USD) to take them home. Harsh for many.
