The deportation spree may not be entirely over as the United Kingdom in the early hours of Friday deported a batch of 120 Nigerians for various offences including from lack of valid papers in their host country, over stay and other related immigration offences.
Although our reporter could not ascertain the name of the flight that brought them, Weekend Champion gathered that the deportees arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, aboard a chartered cargo aircraft which landed and taxied to the cargo terminal of the international terminal.
They were said to have arrived in the early hours of Friday morning sand according to our source comprised mainly of young men and women who narrated their unsavoury experience of being brought back home unprepared.
Most of the deportees looked particularly ruffled making frantic phone calls to their friends and relatives with a view to picking them up at the airport,
As they waited along the main entrance into the cargo terminal drawing unusual attention from airport workers who were rushing to resume work in the early hours, the deportees expressed reservations over the way and manner they were brought back home in the cargo aircraft, which they said is enough indication of the value government places on them.
Scores of airport workers stopped by to interface the deportees, as some of them narrated their experience of not knowing what to fall back on, now that they are back in the country they left many years ago.
One of the deportees, a young lady, who declined to give her name said," I am not interested in discussing why we were brought back home, but, my problem now is how to get out of this international airport without drawing unusual attention. I must add that it is not a pleasant experience."
Another deportee, a young man, who gave his name as Wale said," How do I cope? Now that we have been sent home unprepared."
He poured invectives on the leadership of the country affirming that if the economic situation at home were pleasant, Nigerians have no business travelling abroad to humiliate themselves in a bid to survive.
Cars, mainly commercial limousine operators and car hire operators lined up at the main entrance of the cargo terminal to ferry the willing deportees to their respective destination.
Meanwhile, scores of security officials were on hand to ensure the situation does not degenerate
