The authorities at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport have admitted that three Nigerians have been hunkering down in departures for two months.

 

Previously a Facebook post suggested there was one.

 

The three men arrived on two flights in March but while they were in transit their destination countries closed their borders and seeing as they had no Thai visas they were left stranded at the airport.

 

Two arrived on Emirates on March 21st and were headed for Laos on Lao Airways.

 

The other arrived on Ethihad on March 24th and was due to fly to Myanmar.

Thai media reported that Thailand's region two immigration has been working with the Nigerian embassy and the airlines to provide for the men.

 

If looks as though their ordeal may come to an end in June 4th when they could travel back to the UAE.

Unless they've got plenty of money then they should consider themselves lucky to be there, I doubt they're complaining too much.

There's going to be a lot more people getting stuck in transit and in foreign countries with expired or unusable passports if this goes on much longer. Going be bad luck for those stuck in countries without embassies able to issue passports locally. 
Ridiculous that the Thais couldn't issue them with a temporary visa.

Why would you go to another country to sell drugs in a lockdown?

 

They pay their money up front to the Nigerian drug gang chief who pays for their flight. Then they have to pay that money off from drug sales.

 

So they don't have any money. And the leader of the drugs gang is not helping them.

Staying in transit keeps them out of mischief. What do these guys do in Myanmar and in Laos?
