Hundreds of Nigerians repatriated from South Africa after attacks

First Nigerians fleeing S.A arrive in Lagos

In total, 640 Nigerians living in South Africa had registered at Nigerian missions to take the flights offered by the airline last week after bands of South Africans launched violent attacks against foreign-owned shops and stalls, looting and burning the small businesses and attacking some of the shopkeepers.

Meanwhile, in NY last week, Stéphane Dujarric, the spokesman for the UN Secretary-General strongly condemned the violence, saying that "the Secretary-General has also very much noted President Ramaphosa's unequivocal condemnation of that violence, as well as his call for strengthened accountability in line with democratic values enshrined in South Africa's Constitution".

Aside Air Peace's offer, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari announced Monday that his government had also made arrangements for the immediate voluntary evacuation of all Nigerians.

Moyo added that Harare would "escalate" the evacuation if the situation deteriorated, and he was seeking support from worldwide organizations to help those affected.

It was not immediately clear how many people were on board the flight, operated by the private Nigerian airline Air Peace, but Nigeria's government said it estimated 313 people would board.

Federal election campaign to kick off on Wednesday
There were eight independents - including former Liberal cabinet ministers Jane Philpott and Jody Wilson-Raybould. Scheer, the head of the conservative party, said today that Trudeau had lost the moral authority to govern.

The root causes of the latest series of attacks are unclear, although analysts suggest stubbornly high unemployment and grinding poverty were fuelling criminality.

Following a spate of xenophobic attacks on foreigners.

The recent violence has also strained relations between South Africa and Nigeria, which summoned Pretoria's envoy and boycotted an economic summit in Cape Town in protest.

Nigeria placed seventh with 948 people applying for refugee status and zero accepted, said Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi.

Nigeria isn't the only African nation evacuating its nationals from South Africa in the wake of the xenophobic attacks.
