The Spanish government on Tuesday deported 23 Nigerians for committing various offences in the country, NAN reports.

They were deported barely five days after 34 Nigerians were sent home from six European countries for committing immigration-related offences.

They arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos, at about 6.40am on Tuesday.

The new deportees, comprising 21 males and two females, were brought back in a privilege style aircraft with registration number EC-IZO.

Joseph Alabi, spokesman of the Lagos Airport police command, confirmed the development.

Alabi said that the deportees were received by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the police.

He said that others also on ground to receive them were officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

According to him, nine of the deportees, who were deported for drug-related offences, were handed over to the NDLEA.

He said that two others, who were deported for criminal offences, were handed over to the police.

Alabi said that the remaining 12 deportees, accused of breaching the country’s immigration rules, were profiled and allowed to go to their respective destinations.

The 34 Nigerians jointly deported from Europe on June 22 were sent packing from Switzerland, Germany, Iceland, Austria, Belgium and Hungary.

They were accused of committing immigration-related offences.
