The chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyeama, who offered his flights to repatriate Nigerians from South Africa over xenophobic attacks, has shared his experience with some of the returnees.

Shortly after 187 Nigerians touched down at Lagos from South Africa, Onyeama said he wept when Nigerians who were returning from South Africa mobbed him and sang the country’s anthem. He said:

“I put together over N280 million in other to bring these people back, Air Peace decided to bring them free of charge, nobody paid us a dime, we decided to do it free of charge for our country and for our people,”
he told newsmen.

“When I stepped inside the aircraft to welcome them, they mobbed me and started singing the Nigerian national anthem, there was nobody there singing about separation, they felt proud to be Nigerian, they rose in unison, that drew tears from me.”
