Xenophobia: 320 Nigerians Expected Back From South Africa On Tuesday

No less than 320 Nigerians are expected back in the country on Tuesday amid xenophobic attacks on foreigners in South Africa.

According to The Nation, the new set of returnees will arrive the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos aboard a Boeing 777 – 300 airline operated by Air Peace.

Some 187 Nigerians had arrived from South Africa last Wednesday.

Chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema, told the newspaper that efforts are on to deploy a bigger aircraft which can hold up to 367 passengers.

“We are fully set for Tuesday, our aircraft and crew will leave about four o clock and get to South Africa about 9 o’clock for the operations. We hope about 350 Nigerians are ready so that we fly enough passengers not to leave the aircraft empty,” he said.

Nigeria’s Consul General in Johannesburg, Godwin Adama, had said on Friday that many of the returnees missed the first flight because of their uncoordinated attitudes.

He said the delay in the evacuation process was caused by misplacement of travel documents as required by South African immigration laws.
