Xenophobic attack: Flight to delay for 5 hours – Dabiri

Abike Dabiri-Erewa

The Chairman, Nigeria Diaspora Commission, Honourable Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Wednesday said the arrival of Nigerians from South Africa would be delayed for about five hours.

Honourable Abike said the delay was as a result of immigration documentation in South Africa.

The returnees were expected to have touched down at the Cargo Section of the Muritala Mohammed Airport, Lagos around 1pm Nigeria time.

Abike explained that the South Africa immigration officials came up with “unexpected travel documentations and clearance for the Nigerians  returning to their country.

However, Nigeria officials in South Africa are sorting out the immigration formalities.

So, hopefully, our brothers and sisters will be arriving Nigeria around 5.30 to 6pm,”
