The Egalitarian Mission for Africa has frowned at the deportation of some easterners by the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, under the guise of rehabilitation or reunion.
In a statement issued Saturday by the Executive Director, Mr. Kayode Ajulo, the action of the Lagos State government has no basis in the nation’s law.
“As a matter of fact, it was an action begat in illegality and birthed in unconstitutionality. Every Nigerian has a right to reside in any part of Nigeria without any molestation or harassment whatsoever and regardless of the name of the such infringement is described, the politician and human rights activist said .
Ajulo described as “hollow, jejune, and a gratuitous insult on our collective psyche,” the defence of rehabilitation cum reunion offered by officials of Lagos State.
