The Nigeria immigration service in Niger state says it has repatriated 18 immigrants to the Republic of Niger.

Tamuno Oyedeji, comptroller of immigration service in Niger, told NAN in Minna on Saturday that the ministry of women affairs and social development was also involved in the repatriation process.

She said the service and ministry provided vehicles for the transportation of the illegal immigrants to Zangon Daura, a border post in Katsina state.

She also said the immigrants were handed over to the Niger Republic immigration officers at the border post.

Adedeji stated that the immigrants were repatriated “because they did not have valid documents.”

“Their presence constituted security threat to the residents of the state,” she said.

“They did not have legal valid documents to back their staying here, hence the need for us to send them back to their country.”

Oyedeji said the command would continue to adopt proactive security measures to ensure the safety of all residents of the state.

According to her, more personnel had been deployed in Babana border post to prevent illegal immigrants from coming into the country from the Republic of Benin.
