In 3 months, the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) will commence issuance of residence permits to foreigners, and afterwards, begin deportation of illegal immigrants in the country, the Comptroller-General Muhammad Babandede has said.

According to Daily Trust, Babandede made this known at the passing out parade of 396 cadets in the 44th Superintendent Basic Course held at the Immigration Training School in Kano.

“With present security challenges facing this nation, the only options left for the service is the issuance of permits for all foreign nationals living in the country as a measure to curtail insecurity issues.”

“Therefore, in the next three months, the service will commence issuance of residence permits to foreign nationals residing in Nigeria and anybody who failed to possess his own before the expiration of the stipulated time for the permit issuance faces deportation,” he said.
