In a move that many Nigerians will respect, the Nigerian federal government has approved the deportation of 10 Egyptians and seven Sri-Lankans.
This was disclosed by Sunday James, public relations officer, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), disclosed this in a statement on Friday, September 25.
According to him, the minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola, signed the deportation order in pursuant to section 45, subsection 2, section 46, subsection 1 and section 47, subsection 1 of the Nigeria Immigration Act 2015.
Going further, he said the 10 Egyptians had violated the conditions for their entry and the minister had ordered their deportation with immediate effect.
“Seven Sri-Lankans that were jailed for petroleum product related offences after serving their jail terms were ordered by the court to be deported to their country as well,” he said.
“The minister also signed the deportation order of one Ali Mahamat Taher to France and one Kasinathan Ramasamy to India who were found to be involved in activities violating the conditions of their entry into Nigeria.
“Taher was found to be engaged in activities capable of undermining the security of a friendly neighbouring country to Nigeria in Maiduguri, Borno state.
“While Ramasamy was found working as a shop attendant in Kano.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the planned nationwide strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) might have hit the rock.
The Nation reports that the National Industrial Court on Thursday, September 24, granted an interim injunction restraining the NLC and TUC, their officers, affiliates and privies from embarking on any strike or stoppage of work from Monday, September 28.
