Airpeace Warned Against Scammers Collecting ₦363k For Free Flight From South Africa

Nigeria’s biggest airline, Air Peace, has warned people about scammers
allegedly asking stranded Nigerians to pay $1,000 (₦363,000) for its
free evacuation from the South Africa.

The airline on Thursday
volunteered to send an aircraft to South Africa from Friday, September
6, to evacuate stranded Nigerians who wish to return to the country free
of charge.

The warning comes after a Nigerian living in South
Africa, Fred Okeke, inquired from the airline to confirm whether the
flight is really free or not.

“We heard that you are
donating the flight for free evacuation from South Africa to Nigeria,
but it is very unfortunate to hear that they are asking the affected
victims to pay the sum of $1000 as registration to be eligible to
benefit from the fight. So I want to bring it to your notice.”

Peace Chairman, Allen Onyema, stressed that the evacuation was free
because the airline was concerned about the safety of Nigerians
following the Xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

“We have not designated or recruited any agent in South Africa to collect money on behalf of Air Peace.

“So nobody should pay money to anyone or group of persons posing as Air Peace agent or staff.

Nigerian who has paid money for repatriation to Nigeria with Air Peace
should request for a refund and report to appropriate authorities,”
