The South African government on Friday deported 90 Nigerians for committing immigration-related offences.

The deportees according to a source from the airport police command were flown into the country through the international wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport aboard a South African Airways aircraft marked BBB712 from the xenophobic country.

DSP Joseph Alabi, the spokesman of the Lagos Airport Police Command confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

While some of the deportees were said to have violated immigration offenses, others were accused of living in the country without the prerequisite documents.

On arrival at the Lagos airport, the deportees were received by the law enforcement agencies including the police who profiled them before releasing them to depart to their respective destinations.

Alabi said the deportees, who are all men,  landed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 3.30pm.

“This afternoon, about 3.30pm, 90 Nigerians were deported from South Africa for committing immigration-related offences.

“Some of them were alleged to have been living in the country without valid documents.

“They were received by the appropriate agencies including the police and profiled before being allowed to depart to their respective destinations, ” Alabi said.
