Nigeria: 508 Nigerians to Be Repatriated From S'arabia

About 508 Nigerians staying in S'Arabia illegally will soon be repatriated S'Arabia back to Nigeria.

This is following the expiration of the four months amnesty given to them to regularise their stay in the holy land.

Amb. Ahmed Umar, who is Nigeria's Consul-General in Jeddah, Tuesday in Abuja explained that those to be repatriated were Nigerians who have voluntarily decided to return.

Repatriation, according to him, is expected to begin Wednesday, Christmas Day.
