South Africa Frustrates Evacuation, Arrests Home-bound Nigerians At Airports by Islie: 5:28pm On Sep 11
By Abdullateef Aliyu,



South African authorities are allegedly frustrating the evacuation of Nigerians who are for the first batch of airlift from that country.

Air Peace flight, which left Nigeria 11:30pm yesterday arrived OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg about 4:00am on Wednesday as Nigerians turned up for the airlift.

Sources at the High Commission in Johannesburg informed that after the Commission had prepared the first 320 Nigerians for the first evacuation, the South Africa Immigration was arresting Nigerians who are due to travel, accusing them of travelling without papers.

The Nigerian High Commission had prepared travel documents for returning Nigerians but it was learnt that the immigration was still challenging them demanding to know how they got into their country.

He said: “South Africa is frustrating Nigeria. The Air Peace aircraft has been there since 4:00am. Their Immigration started giving our High Commission problems. They said some Nigerians didn’t have papers. Immigration is arresting them, asking them to explain how they came to South Africa.

“About five minutes ago, only 182 Nigerians were allowed to board the flight while the rest are being barred by South African Immigration. They are frustrating the Nigerian High Commission, taking the passengers away. They want to frustrate the airline and the Nigerian government.

“Our High Commission is having tough time with the South African government. They are stopping and arresting Nigerians, saying they should explain how they came into the country.”

Another source said: “The aircraft has been burning fuel since 4:00am. They are not happy that Nigeria is evacuating its citizens and that a Nigerian airline is involved in evacuating them.”

As at the time of filing this report, the flight has departed the Airport in South Africa and is expected to land at MMIA around 10:00pm Nigerian time.

Unbelievable!

Your people want foreigners out yet the govt wants them slaughtered on the street.

This could only happen because of Buhari's irrelevance, weakness and hate of non Muslims.

I'm ashamed of Buhari, his weak and clueless government. The South African diplomats stationed in Nigeria should have been sent packing by now.

There should be an immediate show of strength the moment this started escalating.

Na wa for dis people o! You don't want them to stay and yet you don't want them to leave?

Kinda remind me of the Biafra Nigeria conundrum.
