Thirty-four Nigerians arrived in the country yesterday after they were deported from six European countries for violating their immigration laws.

The Nigerians were deported from Switzerland, Germany, Iceland, Austria, Belgium and Hungary.

The deportees arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMlA) Lagos, at about 6.30am on board a chartered Airblue Panorama aircraft.

 They were received by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the Police. The deportees comprised 32 males and two females. 

Spokesman of the Lagos Airport Police Command, DSP Joseph Alabi, confirmed the deportation to Aviation Correspondents. 

The deportees allegedly committed immigration-related offences in their host countries, such as over staying their entry visas. Proper profiling of the deportees was first done by officials of the Nigerian Immigration Services to ascertain their identities as Nigerians before they were subsequently freed to enter the country. Some of the deportees even had their relations at the airport waiting to pick them up.  (The Sun)
