South Africa Grants Landing Permit To Air Peace, 2nd Batch Of 320 Nigerians Set For Evacuation

South African authorities have granted landing permit to Air Peace Flight B777 to enable it to evacuate some 320
Nigerians escaping from xenophobia in that country, a Nigerian consular officer has confirmed.


Nigeria’s Consul-General in Johannesburg, Mr Godwin Adama, made the confirmation in a telephone interview with News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday.


Adama spoke against the background of a complaint by the Managing Director of Air Peace, Chief Allen Onyema.
Onyema had said that the refusal of South Africa to grant the permit made it impossible for the flight to leave Lagos at 1a.m. for Johannesburg to convey the second batch of returnees.
