FG okays arrest of Nigerians in Kenya

26 October 2016, 18:21

Abuja - The federal government has backed Kenyan government on the arrest of 26 Nigerians in the country for flouting visa laws.

Jane Bassey-Adams, acting spokesman of ministry of foreign affairs, disclosed this in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja.

She alleged that the arrested persons were not in possession of valid document for their stay in Kenya.

Bassey-Adams said the Immigration authority of the East African country acted in accordance with its domestic laws regarding the arrest of illegal immigrants.

She said the law enabled the authority to crack down on foreigners whose visas had elapsed but remained in Kenya illegally.

“The ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to state that the government of Nigeria does not support, encourage or condone any form of illegal migration and condemns all acts of criminality in its entirety.

“The ministry wishes to inform members of the public that the Nigeria High Commission in Nairobi has since sprang into action to ascertain the circumstances of the arrest.”

"Nigerians living abroad should abide by the law of the country of their residence.

“It will continue to engage countries of residence of all Nigerians abroad with a view to ensuring that they are treated with dignity and respect in accordance with international minimum standard,” the statement read.
