Tension showed clearly on the faces of 41 Nigerians deported from the United Kingdom yesterday. The deportees were very aggressive and refused to interact with newsmen. They screamed intermittently that they were deported unjustly. Some of them who refused to be identified said; “We were not even given any chance to pick any of our possession.
‘’This is inhuman and our government will surely not do anything about it. We know them.” The 41 Nigerians were deported from the United Kingdom allegedly for various immigration offences.
They arrived at the cargo terminal of Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Ikeja Lagos in a chartered Air bus 330 aircraft which touched ground at about 7:40 am. They were made up of 33 males and eight females and were said to have been living illegally in the UK as their visas had expired.
