Another batch of Nigerians numbering 314, have returned from South Africa to Nigeria, following the xenophobic attacks.
The 314, is five people short of the 319 the Chairman/CEO of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa had on Monday told Journalists were expected.
The CEO who welcomed the 314 people, assured them that they will have sim cards, airtime and data that will last for two months, food as well as transportation fare, while the state governments will work to reintegrate them.
