43 Nigerians Deported from Europe

No fewer than 43 Nigerians were deported from Italy, Germany and Belgium on Thursday.
The deportees who arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMlA), Lagos at about 8.40 p.m., Thursday, were said to have been deported for committing various offences in their host communities.
The all male deportees came with a chartered Hifly aircraft with registration number CS-TQW, amidst tight security.
Alhaji Muhammad Sani Sidi, the Director-General, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), confirmed the development.
He said 33 of the deportees were from Italy, while the other seven and another three were deported from Germany and Belgium, respectively.
Sidi, represented by Dr Onimode Bandele, the Deputy Director, Search and Rescue, NEMA, said NEMA and other sister agencies were at the airport to receive the deportees.
“They were deported for committing various offences in their host countries and as you can see, our agencies are here to do the needful.
“As a responsible government, we cannot just leave our citizens to enter the country without giving them a good welcome and assisting them to get back to their families,” he said.
Sidi advised Nigerians to stay in the country and develop it together.
He said stipend would be given to the deportees to facilitate their transportation to their various destinations.
Recall, only recently Nigerians were deported from the United Kingdom and several others brought back to the country from war torn Libya.
