The federal government has officially announced that Nigeria will commence the evacuation of its citizens from troubled South Africa.

The evacuation will commence on September 9, 2019.

The announcement was made by the foreign affairs ministry, which also commended Chief Allen Onyema, who volunteered his airline for the evacuation.

“The ministry of foreign affairs has conveyed the generosity of a patriot Nigerian airline operator and philanthropist, Chief Allen Onyema, to evacuate distressed Nigerians in South Africa who wish to return to Nigeria.

The evacuation is already scheduled for 7/09/2019,” the statement said. The ministry also released nine phone numbers for those willing to return to Nigeria.

According to the statement, Nigerians willing to return should present their full names, village, local government and state of origin, contact address and next of kin. They are also to provide their telephone numbers, copy of passport or any means of identification, two passport photographs.

The ministry, however, added that any Nigerian without a means of identification is also eligible to join those returning.

The disclosure was made in a statement on Wednesday, September 4, by the spokesman for the ministry of foreign affairs, Ferdinand Nwonye.
