Government prepares to bring back more bodies from Nigeria

“I am happy to announce that today … a South African National Defence Force (SANDF) C130 aircraft with a repatriation team is departing to Lagos (Nigeria) to bring the mortal remains of those that have been positively identified,” Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe said on Monday.

The number of South Africans that will be repatriated was not immediately available.

Last year, 85 South Africans were killed and 26 were injured during a tragic incident in Nigeria. Seventy-four bodies have since been repatriated along with all the injured.

“The C130 aircraft is expected back at the Waterkloof Air Force Base on the evening of Wednesday,” Minister Radebe said.
