Aside from the over 150 Nigerians that had been airlifted from South Africa, at least 1000 others have indicated interest to return home over continued xenophobic attacks.
The airlifting, a strategy adopted by the Federal Government to prevent further murder, had commenced barely three days ago.
The Guild, on Saturday, gathered that the over 1000 Nigerians, willing to leave, had submitted their request to the Nigerian High Commission for possible airlifting back to the country by an indigenous airline, Air Peace.
The management of the airline, meanwhile, has debunked the report that it has suspended the evacuation of Nigerians from South Africa.
He said that the airline would continue to bring back Nigerians who are willing to return to their country until the last evacuee is taken out of that country.
