The second batch of 315 Nigerians returned from South Africa on Wednesday at about 7:22 p.m. at the cargo wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
The evacuation which should have taken place on Tuesday was stalled due to delayed landing permit to Air Peace by the South African airport authority.
About 320 people were expected but five passengers were said to have been dropped as a result of documentation issues.
This comes exactly a week after 180 Nigerians returned to the country as a result of the violence in South Africa.
The House of Representatives on Wednesday honoured the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Air Peace Airline, Chief Allen Onyema, for the prompt evacuation of the victims of the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa
Chief Onyema who was admitted into the Special plenary session in his honour was accorded a standing ovation by the members of the Green Chamber.
