50 Nigerians deported from Europe for immigration, drug crimes        

From: Louis Ibah

About 50 Nigerians were, on Thursday, deported from various European countries for the violation of immigration laws and for  drug related crimes.

The deportees were brought into the country through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos with a chartered aircraft with flight number P6-6991. The countries that deported the Nigerians are: Germany, Switzerland, Luxemburg, Austria,  Belgium, Spain, Hungary and Sweden.

The latest deportation is coming barely 48 hours after 40 Nigerians were deported for the same crimes from Italy. Recall that it is also barely a week when another batch of 23 Nigerians were equally repatriated from United Kingdom for similar offences.

Daily Sun learnt that the latest deportees comprised 47 males and three females and arrived the country about 7.45am.

Three of the deportees were repatriated for drug related issues while 47 others were expelled for other immigration related offences.

“Some of the 47 returnees either entered the European countries through fake documents, illegal channels were others overstayed in the countries after the expiration of their visiting visas,” a source at the Lagos airport told Daily Sun.

On arrival,  officials of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) had to first profile the deportees to ascertain that they were Nigerians. Those with criminal offences were handed over to Nigeria Police for further prosecution and the rest were allowed into the country to head to their states of origin.
