A total of 84 illegal immigrants were apprehended within the Seme border axis, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Oweseni disclosed on Thursday.
The commissioner said that the anti-border patrol team unit intercepted the illegal immigrants between 9 and 11 January, 2017.
Owoseni who spoke while addressing journalists, said they claimed they were travelling to Libya.
“The illegal immigrants claimed they are on their way to Libya, but the manner in which they appeared looked suspicious as they were being conveyed into waiting buses,” he said.

He said that police would not allow Lagos to be used as abode for criminal elements.
