Why Nigerians were deported from UK as UK Government plans to deport more 29,000 Nigerians

About 500 Nigerians deported by the United Kingdom government Wednesday arrived at the Hajj and Cargo Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos at 8:07am local time aboard a large chartered aircraft.

NAN reports that they were received and screened at the cargo terminal of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport by officials of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

A reliable source at the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) told NAN that some of them were deported for immigration-related offences.

The source, who pleaded anonymity, said some of them called their friends and relations to pick them up, while others secured cabs to take them to their various destinations.

According to the source, others alleged to have committed criminal offences were handed over to officers from the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID), Alagbon, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The source noted that FAAN was expecting no fewer than 500 deportees, adding that this was only the first batch.

NAN recalled that the Acting Nigerian High Commissioner to the UK, Mr Olukunle Bamgbose, had recently disclosed that the UK Government had plans to deport about 29,000 Nigerians.

  1. It’s high time that most of the Nigerians here in Europe would sharply rip their passports into pieces just to avoid being tagged Nigerians.

  2. Illegal aliens have a right to be deported anywhere in the world. Always entter any country with correct documents or stay in Nigeria.
