At least 20 Nigerians were this morning deported from the United Kingdom and were dropped off at the Murtala Muhammed international airport in Lagos, Nigeria.
They left the United Kingdom at about 2 a.m. today on a chartered flight along with Africans from other countries, Mr. Morrison Robinson, one of the deportees, said.
He said almost all the deportees had overstayed in the United Kingdom beyond the time permitted by their entry visas and were detained before being deported on-board a chartered Italian plane.
“We were many. They are still going to Congo and other African countries,” Robinson said, looking at his two bags and expecting a relative to take him home.
