“I Wept Watching Returnees Sing The National Anthem”- Air Peace Chairman

The Chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyeama says he sobbed when Nigerians who were coming back from South Africa mobbed him and sang the nation’s hymn.

Onyeama uncovered this while tending to the media soon after 187 Nigerians came back from South Africa over xenophobic assaults.

The carrier had offered free flights to the individuals who tried to return.

โ€œI put together over N280 million in other to bring these people back, Air Peace decided to bring them free of charge, nobody paid us a dime, we decided to do it free of charge for our country and for our people.โ€ โ€œWhen I stepped inside the aircraft to welcome them, they mobbed me and started singing the Nigerian national anthem, there was nobody there singing about separation, they felt proud to be Nigerian, they rose in unison, that drew tears from me.โ€
