[LATEST NEWS] Xenophobia: 187 Nigerians arrive Lagos from South Africa (Video)

Up to 187 Nigerians who were evacuated from South Africa have landed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.

Watch Video:

The evacuees, who departed OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg, SA around 4:00p.m. aboard an Air Peace Boeing 777 aircraft, touched down at 9:34pm on Wednesday.

A foreign affairs ministry official, Mr. Kimiebi Ebenfa, who was on board the flight, confirmed their arrival.

He said, “We just landed safely despite the delays in South Africa.”

The returnees comprising men, women and children were the first batch of the 640 Nigerians who registered for evacuation following the xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

About 313 were billed to leave on Wednesday, but most of them could not travel with the first flight due to lack of travel documents.

Providing an update on the evacuation operation earlier while in South Africa, Ebenfa said the passengers checked in for departure at 3:27 pm.

According to him, the flight, which was scheduled for 10a.m. was delayed by the slow check-in process and immigration clearance.

He said, “Flight was delayed due to the slow process of check-in and immigration clearance.

“There were also complaints of system failure.

“Out of the 313 confirmed for the first batch,only 84 were cleared so far,” he said at 9:35 a.m. before the flight took off around 4:00 p.m.

The South African High Commission in Abuja could not be reached for comment on reasons for the delay.
