XENOPHOBIA: Airpeace Warns Nigerians Against Scammers Collecting ₦363k For Free Flight From South Africa

Nigeria’s biggest airline, Air Peace, has warned Nigerians about scammers allegedly asking Nigerians in South Africa to pay $1,000 (₦363,000) for its free evacuation from South Africa.

Recall that on Thursday, 36Naija reported that AirPeace volunteered to send an aeroplane to evacuate Nigerians in South Africa who wish to return home free of charge.

Fred Okeke, a Nigerian in South Africa, inquired from AirPeace to confirm if the flight is really free or not.

“We heard that you are donating the flight for free evacuation from South Africa to Nigeria, but it is very unfortunate to hear that they are asking the affected victims to pay the sum of $1000 as registration to be eligible to benefit from the fight. So I want to bring it to your notice.”

The Air Peace Chairman, Allen Onyema, stressed that the evacuation was free because the airline was more concerned about the safety of Nigerians who are the major victims of the Xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

“We have not designated or recruited any agent in South Africa to collect money on behalf of Air Peace.

“So nobody should pay money to anyone or group of persons posing as Air Peace agent or staff.

“Any Nigerian who has paid money for repatriation to Nigeria with Air Peace should request for a refund and report to appropriate authorities,”
