Twenty Seven Nigerians were deported from SouthAfrica on tuesday
The deportees were brought into the country in a chartered plane marked ZS-GAT with flight number GBB130, which touched down at the international wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport at noon.
According to Nigerian Immigration Services (NIS) sources, the 27 deportees – 26 males and one female – were expelled from South Africa back into the country based on immigrations-related offences.
South African law enforcement agents accompanied the deportees on the flight back home.
They were handed over to NIS officials and other Nigerian law enforcement agents who were on ground to receive the deportees.
Yesterday deportation brought the number of Nigerians deported to the country in the last one week to about 200.
Daily deportation of Nigerians from across the globe has become a recurrent decimal at the Lagos airport, a situation that has been giving Immigration officials tough time.
Nigerians have also been deported recently from a number of African and European countries, including Spain and Libya.
