murtala new mohmd airportNo fewer than 500 Nigerians have been deported from the United Kingdom and arrived the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos on Wednesday morning.

Many of them have been deported over illegal stay permits.

Many of them who were allowed to speak to newsmen complained of the way they were handled by the British authorities, alleging that majority of them were not even allowed take their belongings before being deported.

It has been reported that the authorities plans to deport 29,000 Nigerians.

But the Nigeria High Commission in London had on Oct. 24 expressed worry over plans by the migration and removal policy of the UK Government, to deport the 29,000 Nigerians.

The Acting Nigerian High Commissioner in London, Olukunle Bamgbose, said. “I think about 29,000 Nigerians have been designated to be deported.

“We are insisting that due process must be followed before Nigerians are really removed from the UK to Nigeria,’’ he said.

He gave four conditions that should be met by the UK immigration office before the commission could accept the migration and deportation agenda. – Nigerianeye
