No fewer than 43 Nigerians have been deported from Belgium, Germany and Italy, the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA said.

The affected individuals, sent back home on Thursday night for immigration offences and unruly behaviour, arrived through Hi – Fly chartered Airbus 330 with registration number CS – TQW at Murtala Muhammed International Airport at about 8:50 p.m.

The Deputy Director, Search and Rescue, NEMA, Dr. Bandele Onimode, confirmed seven of the deportees from Belgium, three from Germany and 33 came from Italy.

Onimode said the agency would ensure they got to their various destinations while also urging them to stay in the country and help develop it.

“They are coming back almost empty and this is a lesson for them to settle down home and be useful to their country. We will ensure that they are well catered for,” Onimode added.
