The rate at which Nigerians are getting deported from other countries is almost alarming.
It has been reported that 35 Nigerians were on Wednesday, May 24, deported by the United Kingdom for committing immigration-related offences in the country.
The deportees arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos at about 5.50 a.m.
The deportees, comprising 30 males and five females, were brought back aboard a chartered Titanic Airways aircraft with registration Number: G-POWO.
The spokesman of the Lagos Airport Police Command, DSP Joseph Alabi, confirmed the development.
The deportees were received by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and the Police.
Also on ground to receive them were officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria
The deportees were profiled by the immigration authorities and were each given a stipend to facilitate their transportation to their respective states.
It would be recalled that the British authorities had on March 31 deported 23 Nigerians despite efforts of some activists to prevent their deportation.
A dozen activists broke through security at Stansted Airport in London, and chained themselves together on runway to stop the expulsion of the asylum seekers.
On March 8, the Italian government deported 37 Nigerians from the country for similar reasons.
