Australia, UK deport 40 Nigerians for immigration offences

Governments of both the United Kingdom and Australia have this morning deported 40 Nigerians for various immigration offences.

A batch of 36 deportees comprising 29 males and seven females arrived at the hajj camp area of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at 7:25am on chartered aircraft with registration number ZTA -4741 while an Air Seychelles aircraft with the registration number SND-1 brought four males into the country for similar immigration offences.

Apart from Nigerians that were deported by the two countries, some citizens of Africa especially from Ghana, Liberia and Egypt were equally deported alongside the Nigerians.

The returnees were received by various agencies such as Immigration that checked their identities to ascertain their nationalities, Police, National Agency for Protection and Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, and other relevant stakeholders.

A source disclosed that some of the deportees were violent when officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS, attached to the international wing of the airport attempted to collect their fingerprints for data purpose.

The source told our correspondent that others who didn’t kick against the fingerprinting were swiftly attended to by the officers and were allowed to leave the airport after the completion of their documentations.

At the hajj and cargo terminal some of the deportees waited for any available means to get out of the airport without attracting much attention to themselves while others clustered up and were discussing their fate.

The deportees it was gathered were returned from their host countries for overstaying their visas and other immigration offences.
