No fewer than 84 Nigerian soldiers and two officers have returned to the country after serving in the ECOWAS Stabilisation Support Mission in Guinea Bissau.

The Nigerian contingent landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Monday evening after the expiration of their tour of duty.

Similarly, troops comprising nine officers and 77 soldiers deployed to take over from them departed the airport en route to Guinea Bissau.

West African countries began deploying a stabilization force to Guinea Bissau after the country was thrown into turmoil when its president escaped a coup attempt in February.
