500 Nigerians Deported From UK Arrives Lagos Airport

According to reports, 500 Nigerians deported from the United Kingdom for illegal stay permits has arrived the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos this morning.

When interviewed, one of them said he was arrested by British police and was not allowed to even take his belongings before being deported. The UK government plans to deport 29,000 Nigerians.

The Nigerian government has frowned at the mass deportation, stating that efforts must be made by the UK government to ensure those being deported are really Nigerians, medically fit to travel and have a role to play in the country - meaning they should be able to fit into Nigerian society.
