Abuja - The recently-elected leader of the Special Task Force (STF) in Plateau State pledged to work closely with the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to rid the region of illegal immigrants.
The new STF Commander, David Eniete, unveiled such plans hen he paid a courtesy visit on the Plateau State Comptroller of Immigration in Jos.
Eniete commended the Comptroller for the synergy which has existed between the two organisations in the State.
“I have been informed of the excellent work you (Comptroller) have been doing towards curbing illegal immigrants in the State and I promise to maintain that strong relationship to make peace return permanently to Plateau State.”
He commended the Immigration Service for intelligent gathering of vital information concerning operations in the Plateau region.
“A lot has been done by my predecessor we still have much to do. We would not relent, but would continue to maintain the existing momentum.”
Plateau State Comptroller of Immigration, Audu Wuyep welcomed the new STF Commander and his entourage, stressing that there had been a long standing and cordial relationship between his organization and the military.
He commended the officers of the STF who on several occasions intercepted suspicious persons whose nationalities were doubtful.
Wuyep said such suspects had promptly been referred to the Immigration Office and those identified to be prohibited immigrants were deported out of Nigeria.
