Over 300 Nigerians evacuated from South Africa by local airline, Air Peace
Scores of Nigerian nationals on Wednesday flew out of South Africa in the wake of rising xenophobic attacks against fellow Africans.
The group of about 300 passengers took advantage of a free evacuation offer by local airline operator, Air Peace.
The airline’s evacuation plan had been delayed by lack of documentation of beneficiaries.
Nigerian authorities in South Africa subsequently arranged temporal travel certificates for most of those that had offered to return home.
