Fresh facts reaching us from South Africa confirm that several Nigerians spent the night at the consulate office of Nigeria in South Africa in order to catch the next flight home.

The fear of many, according to reports, was missing the second free Air Peace flight to Nigeria.

Out of 640 Nigerians who indicated interest in returning, 187 of them are already on Nigerian soil courtesy of Air Peace Airlines who brought the first batch on Wednesday, September 11, 2019.

Many, including mothers and children, were refused boarding because of the invalid documents they presented.

Barring any last minute change in plans, the flight expected to take more Nigerians back home from South Africa has been scheduled for today, Friday, September 13, 2019.

Some people had visited the consulate office early on Thursday with the hope that there would be a flight.

But no one at the consulate was aware of any such flight.
