Don’t Pay Scammers $1000, Evacuation from South Africa is Free – Air Peace
Nigeria’s major carrier, Air Peace has warned people about scammers allegedly asking Nigerians in South Africa to pay some money to be evacuated from the country.
The airline insisted that it was offering a free flight to Nigerians who wish to return home and urged them not to pay for the service.
The airline gave the warning in reaction to the disturbing report that some people had been collecting $1,000 Nigerians seeking to return to Nigeria via Air Peace flight.
A Nigerian living in South Africa inquired from Air Peace to confirm whether the flight is free because some people were already collecting money for the flight.
A Nigerian in South Africa, Fred Okeke, had written to the airline, “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.”
But Air Peace Chairman, Allen Onyema, said, “We are offering a free trip to Nigerians in South Africa to return home after going through the traumatic experience of the attacks. Air Peace has said this is free and we are doing it in solidarity with the federal government.
“We have not designated or recruited any agent in South African 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. Any Nigerian who has paid money for repatriation back to Nigeria with Air Peace should request a refund and report to appropriate authorities.”
