Xenophobic Attacks - First Batch Of Nigerians Totalling 178 Arrive Lagos

According to Premiumtimes about 178 Nigerians arrived the Murtala Muhammed airport in Lagos by 9.23 p.m on Wednesday in the first wave of evacuations in the aftermath of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

Air Peace, a Nigerian airline, offered to evacuate Nigerians after several Nigerian businesses and nationals were attacked in the xenophobic attacks.

The incident led to a diplomatic row between the two biggest African economies.

A total of 313 Nigerians were expected but due to a delay in the process of checking in and clearance by immigration, only 178 were confirmed on board and ready to depart for Lagos.
 Geoffrey Onyeama, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, commended the management of Air Peace for the successful evacuation of the first batch of willing Nigerians from Johannesburg, South Africa.

The minister also promised that “the second batch of the evacuation exercise will commence soonest after working out necessary modalities with the Nigerian mission in South Africa.”

He further appealed to Nigerians in South Africa to remain calm and patient as the federal government is “engaging relevant stakeholders towards finding permanent measures to the unfortunate xenophobic attacks on Nigerians”.
