Quite often, we read reports of Nigerians being deported from the diaspora for various reasons including illegal migration or crime related offences.

However, the tables have turned this time as federal authorities have shown the exit door to some foreigners resident in Nigeria.

Eighteen foreigners who entered the country illegally would be sent packing by the Nigeria Immigration Service.

They were arrested by officers of NIS in Ogun at Akonu village, Bode Olude area.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, Olaniyi Mobolaji, said on Sunday in Abeokua that they would soon be repatriated to their countries of origin.

He said that 10 of the 18 illegal immigrants were indigenes of Benin Republic while eight were Togolese.

The PRO said the command received intelligence report on their activities based on the directive of the state Comptroller, Ajibola Bayeroju.

Those arrested have been living and working in Nigeria without appropriate documentation.
