According to reports, many had lost their source of livelihood and some their precious lives, and their safety in South Africa no longer guaranteed.

Air Peace had volunteered to airlift these Nigerians, free of charge – an act that would cost the company millions of naira. This has endeared Mr. Onyema to hearts of Nigerians, and for the Igbos, it’s a moment to be proud.
