The British Government deported no fewer than 120 Nigerians from the U.K. for various immigration offences. The deportees arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Ikeja in Lagos in the early hours of yesterday. The deportess were airlifted back home aboard a chartered cargo aircraft that landed at the cargo section of the international airport.
A reliable source told newsmen that the deportees were brought home in the early hours, so as not to draw undue attention from the public.
The deportees, comprising mainly young men and women, narrated their unsavoury experiences, saying that they were brought back home unprepared by the British authorities. Many of them were said to have kept themselves busy, making telephone calls to their friends and relations on how to pick them at the airport.
The source said that the deportees also made frantic efforts to move their luggage which were packed in ‘Ghana Must Go bags from the cargo wing of the airport to the airport’s main gate, preparatory to finding their ways out of the airport. Some of the deportees were said to have expressed reservations over the way and manner they were brought home in a cargo aircraft.
