As part of efforts to curb the level of
crime being perpetrated by illegal
aliens, the Nigerian Immigration Service,
Lagos State Command, has said it is set
to deport about 100 Chadians, Nigeriens and
Malians from the country.
The development came less than a week after a
Chadian was arrested in Ijora area of the state on
suspicion of terrorism.
The spokesman for the command, Muyiwa
Odunnubi, told our correspondent that the foreigners
would be deported on Tuesday .
It was learnt that after the arrest of the terror
suspects in Lagos, the state police command
embarked on a raid on Friday and arrested over a
hundred people suspected to be illegal aliens.
Odunnubi said apart from the state police command,
the Lagos State Taskforce on the Environment and
Special Offences had also embarked on raids.
“The taskforce will deliver 69 suspected illegal
aliens to our custody while the state police command
will transfer 38 to us. They will be screened and then
those who are illegal will be conveyed to their
respective countries by bus,” he said.
