Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, announced the good news of their arrival on her official Twitter handle.
According to Dabiri, both singers landed at the Muritala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) on Thursday, December 17, at around 12:35 pm.
Dabiri also disclosed that Muyiwa Ayoniyi who was also arrested alongside the singers in Uganda is back home in Nigeria.
Abike tweeted, “Stanley Omah Didia (@Omah_Lay), Temilade Openiyi ( @temsbaby), Muyiwa Ayoniyi and others just landed at the MMIA Lagos from Uganda via Ethiopia Airline at about 12:35 pm local time. We are glad they are finally home.”
In a follow-up tweet, the NIDCOM chairman shared a picture of the Nigerian artistes at the airport and also extended appreciation to Nigeria’s foreign affairs minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, the mission in Uganda and the Uganda government for a quick resolution of the matter.
Recall both singers were arrested by the Ugandan police after they both performed at a crowded concert despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Tems and Omah were subsequently charged to court by the police and remanded in separate prisons after their first court appearance.
