The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said they were sent back to the country for various immigration offences.

They were conveyed in a Hi-Fly chartered Airbus 330 with registration number CS-TQW.

Bandele Onimode, NEMA’s deputy director, search and rescue operation, said three of the deportees came from from Germany; seven from Belgium and 33 from Italy.


In recent times, Nigeria has witnessed an increase in the rate of its citizens who were ejected from foreign countries.
