About 97 Nigerians have been deported from South Africa for alleged civil and criminal offences.

The deportees – 95 males and two females – arrived at Murtala Muhammed International Airport from Johannesburg on Monday night.

Those accused of criminal offences were handed over to the police for prosecution, while those accused of committing civil offences were allowed to go home.

This is coming a few days after a South African mob attacked Nigerians and their businesses in the country.

The Nigerian government condemned the attacks, and also threatened consequences if they are not checked.

The Nigerian senate has also resolved to send a strong delegation to the country to protest against the attacks.

In the space of a month, about 500 Nigerians have been deported  from different countries.

Last week, 314 Nigerians were forced to return home as a result of harrowing experiences in Libya.

On Thursday, Cameroon repatriated 517 Nigerians, while Germany, Italy and Belgium deported 43 Nigerians on Friday.

On Monday, 41 Nigerians girls who were trafficked to Mali returned.

The economic situation in the country has made many consider the other option of seeking green pasture abroad.
