At least 41 Nigerians deported from the United Kingdom arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos on Wednesday aboard a chartered aircraft.
Muhammad Sidi, Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), who disclosed this to reporters in Lagos, said 33 adult males and eight female deportees arrived the country at about 8: 00 a.m, local time.
The Nigerians were deported because they committed various immigration offences, he said.
He stressed that Nigeria had moved ahead since the deportees left the country, adding that everybody has equal opportunities under the present government.
Sidi told reporters that some stipends would be given to the deportees, to facilitate their transportation to their various destinations. Enditem
