NIS repatriates 450 illegal immigrants in Edo

The Nigeria Immigra­tion Service (NIS) said on Tuesday it has repa­triated at least 450 illegal im­migrants from Edo State in the first quarter of the year.
The Comptroller of Immi­gration in the state, Mr. Da­vid Adi, disclosed this at the presentation of a refurbished Hilux van by the Manage­ment of Okomu Oil Palm Company Plc to the com­mand in Benin.
Adi said those repatriated were mainly from Niger Re­public, Mali and Ghana, add­ing that they were “irregular immigrants’’ and security risks to the country.
He said the affected for­eigners had no regular travel documents and credible means of livelihood.
