65 deportees arrive Lagos

25 January 2013, 16:10

Lagos - Sixty-five Nigerians were on Friday deported from Europe, an official of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), said in Lagos.

The FAAN official, who pleaded anonymity, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport's Cargo Section in Lagos.

The source noted that the deportees were deported from the European countries of Spain, Bulgaria, Romania and the UK.

The source said that the deportees, who arrived at 7:40 a.m., were made up of 48 males, 12 females and five children.

He explained that they were arrested for allegedly having expired documents and being illegal aliens.

The source said that eight of the deportees, including three females, were deported for alleged criminal offences.

He added that the eight persons were immediately arrested on arrival by policemen and taken to the Criminal Investigation Department, Nigerian Police Force, Alagbon Close, Ikoyi, Lagos, in a Toyota pick-up with registration number “Ontario AZKC-549”.

A NAN Correspondent who was at the venue reported that the five male deportees initially resisted arrest, but were later persuaded by the plain clothed policemen.
