As part of efforts to curb the level of crime being perpetrated by illegal aliens, the Nigerian Immigration Service, Lagos State Command, has said it is set to deport about 100 Chadians, Nigeriens and Malians from the country.
The development came less than a week after a Chadian was arrested in Ijora area of the state on suspicion of terrorism.
The spokesman for the command, Muyiwa Odunnubi, told our correspondent that the foreigners would be deported on Tuesday .
It was learnt that after the arrest of the terror suspects in Lagos, the state police command embarked on a raid on Friday and arrested over a hundred people suspected to be illegal aliens.
Odunnubi said apart from the state police command, the Lagos State Taskforce on the Environment and Special Offences had also embarked on raids.
“The taskforce will deliver 69 suspected illegal aliens to our custody while the state police command will transfer 38 to us. They will be screened and then those who are illegal will be conveyed to their respective countries by bus,” he said.
