The second batch of Nigerian emigrants has finally left South Africa after a long wait from Tuesday.

The 314 evacuees and the Head of Immigration and Consular Matters at Nigeria’s Consulate General in Johannesburg, Mr. Anthony Ogbe finally boarded the Air Peace Flight and left a few minutes before 3 pm local time.

According to reports, four passengers were dropped over documentation issues.

Out of the four, a South African woman and her children were dropped because of her citizenship and illegal possession of a Nigerian Emergency Travel Certificate instead of a passport and required a visa.
