Xenophobia: Second Batch of Nigerians To Leave South Africa On September 14th

Xenophobia

According to new reports making the rounds, it appears that the next flight airlifting Nigerians who indicated interest to voluntarily leave South Africa would leave the country on Saturday, September 14th, 2019.

You’d recall that the Nigerian government recently ordered the immediate evacuation of Nigerians from South Africa following a renewed xenophobic attack in the country.

A batch of 187 Nigerians transported by Air Peace already arrived in the country on Wednesday night with the Nigerian government promising returnees stipends and entrepreneurship training.

Confirming the takeoff of the second batch from South Africa, Prince Ben Okoli, President of Nigerian Citizen Association, South Africa (NICASA) said collation of names is ongoing by the Nigerian embassy in South Africa.

In his words;

We are busy doing the collating of names of intending returnees for the next flight.

Hopefully, according to the consul general, the next evacuation will be done on Saturday.

According to reports, at least one person was killed and five others injured in Johannesburg on Sunday after security forces clashed with looters in the latest outbreak of xenophobic violence.
