FORMER Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode, has lashed out at South African authorities for their non compliance with smooth evacuation of many Nigerians back home to Nigeria from South Africa.
Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, made his feelings known through his tweeter handle as berated South African authorities for arresting and preventing the ongoing evacuation of Nigerians from the country.
“First you kill our compatriots and when we send planes to pick them up and bring them back home to their loved ones, you refuse to let them go.
“South Africa, you will pay!” The tweeter message reads.
Reports emerged yesterday that the South African authorities are frustrating the evacuation of Nigerians who have completed processes for the first batch of airlift from that country.
The Nigerian government is evacuating its citizens following recent xenophobic attacks on foreigners by the South Africans.
