Xenophobia: Nigeria Evacuates Citizens from South Africa
The 320 passengers, who are among over 600 Nigerians to be airlifted by Air Peace Airlines, are expected to have arrived the Murtala Muhamed International Airport, Ikeja at 9am this morning.
Confirming this development, the Nigerian Consul-General, Godwin Adama, said their evacuation followed the conclusion of their documentation in the aftermath of the recent xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other foreign nationals in South Africa.
“We are documenting people through filling of relevant forms with information such as place of birth, state of origin, local government areas. We also check nationality and discourage wives with different nationalities to avoid bringing in other nationals. We equally discourage those wanting to take advantage of the flight.” he said
