Air Peace Offers to Evacuate Stranded Nigerians from Crisis-Ridden Sudan Free of Charge

Air Peace, Nigeria’s airline, has pledged to evacuate Nigerian citizens who are stranded in Sudan and are willing to leave the war-torn country free of charge. Chairman of Air Peace, Mr Allen Onyema, stated that Nigerian students and others in Sudan urgently need their help. However, Air Peace will only be able to evacuate them if they are moved to a neighbouring country, as Sudan’s airspace is currently closed to civil aviation flights.

This is not the first time that Air Peace has provided humanitarian assistance in such a crisis. In 2019, the airline deployed flights to evacuate Nigerians from South Africa during the xenophobic attacks in the country. Mr Onyema stated that he felt compelled to help in this situation because Nigeria could not afford to lose her citizens in Sudan. He emphasized that everything must not be left to the government alone, especially in situations that require immediate action.

Mr Onyema concluded by saying that Air Peace is ready to act immediately to ensure that stranded Nigerians in Sudan are safe and secure. He also urged the government to take action and move the stranded Nigerians to a safe and secure airport in any of the neighbouring countries bordering Sudan. Air Peace is committed to promoting national pride, national cohesion, peace and unity, and will continue to help Nigerian citizens in times of crisis.
