The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that their deportation is coming less than 48 hours after 41 Nigerians were deported from the United States of America for similar reasons.
NAN reports that the deportees, comprising of 10 males and one female, arrived at the Hajj Camp area of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at 7.10 PM.
They were received by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and the Lagos Airport Police Command.
The spokesperson of the command, DSP Joseph Alabi, confirmed the deportation to NAN.
According to him, they were deported for allegedly committing immigration-related offences and other criminal acts in their host country.
NAN also reports that the United Kingdom and Australia, on May 25, jointly deported 40 Nigerians alleged to have committed various offences in both countries.
