As Nigeria seeks diplomatic resolution on the attack of its nationals in South Africa,  indigenous carrier – Air Peace  on Wednesday offered to repatriate   those stranded.

The offer, the airline, said was  a sign of  its solidarity with  President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

The Chairman of the airline, Allen Onyema, made the announcement while sympathizing with the victims who lost their lives and properties in the attacks.

According to him, the airline decided to bring back Nigerians in support of the action already taken by the federal government.

In reaction to the attacks in South Africa, the Buhari administration has recalled Nigeria’s High Commissioner to South Africa.
