President of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has paid the return ticket for 20 Nigerians in South Africa.
The cleric had in September pledged to finance the return of 20 Nigerians willing to return to the country amid renewed xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
In a tweet on Friday night, Suleman announced that the 20 South African returnees had arrived the country, adding that they were given N1.3 million for support.
“God helped us to bring back 20 South African returnees who were eager to come home and gave them N1.3m little support. Sorry I wasn’t at the airport to receive you. @RAyemoba our able servant of God, thanks for standing in for me,” he wrote.
Attacks on Nigerians living in South Africa have this year forced hundreds of persons to flee the country.
About 187 persons arrived in mid-September as the first set of returnees financed by Air Peace.
President Muhammadu Buhari visited South Africa afterwards where he held talks with President Cyril Ramaphosa to find a solution to the crisis.
