Amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Nollywood’s Uche Maduagwu has publicly called on clergymen, Enoch Adeboye and David Oyedepo to come to the aid of stranded Nigerian students. Maduagwu in a post shared on his Instagram page begged the men of God to send their private jets to Ukraine and evacuate students who are still stranded in the country. The actor wrote: “Dear Pastor Adeboye, Jesus would be so happy if you will use your multimillion-dollar private jet to help evacuate thousands of stranded Naija students from Ukraine. That will be the best BIRTHDAY Thanksgiving to God.”
In a different portion of the post, Maduagwu made a case for the government while noting that it cannot evacuate students all alone.
Meanwhile, some Nigerians are interested in helping Ukraine overcome the invasion of its country by Russian forces. The Ukrainian embassy in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja was besieged by young Nigerians interested in helping Ukraine. The situation was reported in several countries as Britons, Americans and Canadians also offered to help Ukraine.
