Abike Dabiri-Erewa, chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, who disclosed this in a tweet, said the returnees will proceed on compulsory 14 days quarantine as stipulated by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
Some of the Nigerians faced racial discriminations in Guangzhou, China.
They were reportedly evicted from their apartments and hotels, following their alleged refusal to go for the mandatory quarantine imposed by the Guangdong Provincial authorities, over the outbreak of coronavirus.
Some Nigerians sent a video of a woman with two children, who were staying on the streets.
In the footage, the unidentified woman was feeding her infant daughter, as the older second child slept in a baby walker.
However, Chinese authorities said they subsequently provided free hotel accommodations for 207 Nigerians.
The government said the beneficiaries included Nigerians who were evicted from their hotels and apartments by officials in the wake of the compulsory quarantine and testing of foreigners for coronavirus by the Guangzhou Municipal Authorities.
