The Nigeria Immigration Service in Niger says it has repatriated 18 immigrants to the Republic of Niger.

The Comptroller of Immigration Service in the state, Mrs Tamuno Oyedeji, said in Minna on Saturday that the service and Federal Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development provided vehicles for the transportation of the illegal immigrants to Zangon Daura, a border post in Katsina State.

She also said that the immigrants were handed over to the Niger Republic Immigration officers at the border post.

Adedeji explained that the immigrants were repatriated because they did not have valid documents, adding that their presence constituted a security threat to the residents of the state.

“They did not have legal valid documents to back their staying here, hence the need for us to send them back to their country,’’ she said.

The comptroller said that the command would continue to adopt proactive security measures to ensure the safety of all residents of the state.

She stated that more personnel had been deployed in Babana border post to prevent illegal immigrants from coming into the country from the Republic of Benin.
