The evacuation of about 320 Nigerians living in South Africa has been delayed.

The delay was as a result of the Air Peace Airline not being granted a landing permit.

The 320 returnees were initially expected home today as part of the government’s efforts to evacuate Nigerians, in the wake of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
