No fewer than 83 Nigerians are expected
to arrive in the country today (Wednesday) following their deportation
from the United Kingdom.
It was gathered that among those to be
deported were residents whose documents had expired and prisoners whose
terms of imprisonment were nearing completion.
The spokesperson for the National
Emergency Management Agency, South-West Zone, Ibrahim Farinloye, said
the deportees were expected to be in the country at 5am.
He said they would arrive through the
Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, adding that officials of
the agency and other government workers were expected to receive them.
Farinloye said the prisoners would complete their jail terms in Nigeria.
He said, “We were informed that 83
Nigerians would be deported from the United Kingdom on Wednesday
morning. Some of the people affected are those who haven’t completed
their prison sentences. They would be taken to Nigerian prisons to
complete their terms. Although we cannot tell the various offences, we
believe others could be drug-related and immigration problems.
“We expect that when they arrive in the
country, we would be able to know the real reason for their deportation.
The aircraft is expected to arrive in the country at 5am at the Murtala
Muhammed International Airport.”
If you don’t have anything to do and you have no guarantees, no need to run away from Nigeria
