52 Nigerians Lose Legal Rights To Stay In UK
Investigation in London revealed that the arrangement have been concluded for the deportation of the affected Nigerians made up of 41 males and 11 females on a chartered flight yesterday.
Mr Muhammed Isa, Head of Immigration Section in the Nigerian High Commission, who confirmed the development, said that already, manifest documenting detailed offences of those to be deported have been forwarded to appropriate authorities in Nigeria.
He said the deportees, who breached the rules of their stay in the UK, include asylum seekers, over-stayers and convicted drug traffickers that have completed their terms.
Isa, who noted further that an enforced removal of Nigerians from the UK was ` certainly' not the preferred choice of either the Commission, the British Authority and those affected, advised Nigerians to obey the rules of their host countries and avoid getting involved in criminal activities. (NAN)
