Lagos - Some young Nigerian scholars have taken Qatar Airways Nigeria Limited before a Lagos State High Court in Ikeja over their deportation from the Republic of the Philippines, Punch reports.
The scholars numbering about 13 are claiming about N2.9bn in damages, blaming the airline for their deportation sometime in November last year.

The airline, however dismissed their claims, insisting that it could not be held responsible for the alleged irregularities in their papers, which led to their summary detention and eventually deportation to Nigeria.
They are praying the court for an order directing the airline to pay them about N9m, being a refund of their air ticket fees; the sum they used in procuring visa, the cost of five return tickets purchased for five of the students before their eventual deportation and the cost of filing the suit.
