“I think about 29,000 Nigerians have been designated to be deported.”
Acting Nigerian High Commissioner in London, Olukunle Bamgbose revealed this when he spoke with State House Correspondents covering Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s visit to London, Premium Times reports.

Before the Nigerians are sent back home, Bamgbose insists that due process and certain conditions must be met.

He gave four conditions that should be met by the UK immigration office before the commission could accept the migration and deportation agenda.

  • First, we must ensure that they are really Nigerians
  • They are medically fit to travel
  • All the legal processes must have been completed
  • That they have role to play in Nigeria

He added, “You do not expect someone who has not been to Nigeria for 30 years to 40 years, and does not have any family and you want to deport him. He will constitute social problems to us in Nigeria; so these are the sore points at this moment that we have.’’

    But how is point number 4 valid? They belonged to Nigeria in the first instance no? And why the use of “I think”- don’t they have a good idea of how many people are to be deported? It would even seem like more people with the rate at which Nigerians run to the UK.

      Lmao as demented as it sounds I support number four. The way the commissioner will make the decision is the same way the UK makes informed decisions about who they give visas to. It is based on discretion and evidence, abi? Oya, let’s go there.

    Really??? At #4. That they have a role to play. Nigeria will always be showing our ignorance with statements like this. Being a Citizen means that the country has a responsibility to your safety and care and that includes ensuring your safe return home regardless of the situation. We say Nigeria will be better than its western counterparts but yet refuse to emulate things about the western world that make them attractive to immigrants. They are Nigerian citizens and by law have every right to reside in the country without any thought or question. You know the UK will deport them anyway. Na for Muri, you will be finding them one by one.
