Barely twenty four hours after the Air Peace airline started free evacuation of Nigerians from South Africa over xenophobic attacks, another Nigerian has signaled interest to offer free flight ticket for evacuation of more nationals from the country.
Legit.ng reports that the gesture was made by the presiding pastor, Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, on Thursday, September 12, as he said he was ready to airlift more Nigerians willing to return home from South Africa.
Apostle Suleman made this known on his verified twitter handle @APOSTLESULEMAN. According to him, he is ready to pay for flight tickets for 20 Nigerians who are willing to come home from South Africa.
It would be recalled that the chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema, had volunteered to release aircraft free of charge for evacuation of Nigerians willing to return home.
He said: “Air Peace is willing to support the Nigerian government’s efforts in this matter by deploying our aircraft to evacuate Nigerians back home.
"The chairman of the Air Peace also advised the returnees against making payment to anyone for their flights to Lagos."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that some Nigerians who fled South Africa over the xenophobic attacks on foreigners by South Africans arrived Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos.
It was reported that the returnees were at the airport at 9.35 pm on Wednesday, September 11, on-board an Air Peace flight.
