Don’t pay for evacuation flight fees from South Africa – Air peace warns against scammers

It is coming a few hours after the federal government revealed plans of evacuating Nigerians from South Africa.

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has revealed the federal government’s plan to evacuate its citizen from South Africa.

Nigeria’s Ambassador to South Africa has also been recalled for further talk and to evaluate the spate of attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.

It is coming a few days after Three Nigerians were killed during an attack on foreigners in South Africa.

One of the people killed was burnt alive.

The attack on foreigners started on Sunday morning, where angry mobs stormed foreign businesses and Loot.

The attacks are believed to have been carried out by the Zulu hostel dwellers.

One of the Nigerian businesses affected was a Nigerian car dealer, whereby his businesses were set ablaze.

The attack spread across the second day before the security operatives got involved, dispersing the angry Mob.

Meanwhile, the leader of South African Economic Freedom Fighters, EFF, in a statement, condemned the attack.

He said whether you are from South Africa or Zimbabwe, this is your home. He, therefore, calls for an end to self-hate. He said, Africa, we are one, Nigerians are our brothers.

It is coming three weeks after the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) came out in numbers to lock down South African companies in protest of the Xenophobic attack on Nigerians.
