UK Deports 28 Nigerians For Immigration Offences
There appears to be a joint decision by some European countries to deport Nigerians.
How else do we explain the deportation of another 28 Nigerians by the Government of the United Kingdom for committing immigration-related offences?
It is barely 48 hours after 23 Nigerians were deported from Spain and five days after another batch of 34 were jointly deported by the governments of Switzerland, Germany, Iceland, Austria, Belgium and Hungary.
The fresh batch of deportees arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMlA), Lagos at about 12.13 p.m on Thursday
Spokesman of the Lagos Airport Police Command, DSP Joseph Alabi, said the deportees, comprising 21 males and seven females, were brought back aboard a chartered Titanic Airways aircraft with registration number: AWC-761/2.
He said they were received by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the Police.
As usual, officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) were also on ground to receive them.
The deportees were profiled by the immigration authorities and were each given a stipend to facilitate their transportation to their respective states.
