42 Nigerians have been expelled from Niger Republic after entering the West African country illegally.

In a statement by Abdullahi Dalhatu, the Acting Controller of Nigeria Immigration Service in Katsina State,  made the disclosure on Friday, adding that 12 of the affected persons were arraigned before a Federal High Court sitting in Katsina on Thursday under Justice Hadiza Shagari.

He added that, “Twelve of the 42 repatriated Nigerians have been arraigned before the Federal High Court in Katsina for evading immigration clearance while crossing Nigerian border to another country through illegal routes. The rest will soon be arraigned upon completion of charges against them.

“I implore fellow Nigerians with the intention of entering or leaving Nigeria to always present themselves at a recognized port of entry before the immigration officer for examination.”

In reaction to this, Senator Shehu Sani twitted, “With hundreds of thousands of Citizens of Niger Republic living in Nigeria for generations, in most parts of the north, deporting “42” Nigerians from Niger can only trigger an action that will not be helpful to the brotherly relationship that exists between the two countries”.
