It came barely 24 hours after the eighth flight in which 94 Nigerians were evacuated from Houston, Texas.

Six of all nine flights operated by Ethiopian Airlines originated from the Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey, and were coordinated by the Consulate General of Nigeria in New York.
