By Lillian Ogbonna (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – For reportedly gaining entry without valid travelling documents, about 42 Nigerians have been deported from Niger Republic, according to Abdullahi Dalhatu, Acting Controller, Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Katsina State, who disclosed this via a statement on Friday.

According to the statement, the deportees were repatriated to Nigeria through the NIS control post in Kongolam, and that twelve of them were arraigned before a Federal High Court sitting in Katsina, presided over by Justice Hadiza Shagari, charged with evading Immigration clearance while crossing Nigerian border to another country through illegal routes.

The remaining deportees would be arraigned, according to the statement, which adviced  prospective Nigerian travellers to go through legitimate ports of entry and with valid documents.
