NIS arrests 147 illegal immigrants in Ondo

Mr. David Shikfu Parradang, NIS Comptroller General
Officers of the Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Immigration Service on Friday paraded 147 persons from Niger Republic and Chad, who illegally came to the state without valid travelling documents.

The Comptroller of NIS in the state, Mr. Adesola Sessi, told journalists in Akure that the illegal immigrants were picked up by his men at the Sabo and Shasha areas of the state capital.

He explained that the people will be repatriated to their countries of origin immediately because they were constituting a great security risk, especially when it was discovered that they had no means of livelihood.

He said two of them attacked and injured some immigration officers while trying to resist arrest on Thursday.

Sessi said the illegal immigrants had been living in the state for a very long time and that it took his men diligent surveillance to fish them out of their hideouts.
