About 43 Nigerians were deported from Germany, Belgium and Italy on Thursday night for immigration offences and unruly behaviour, the National Emergency Management Agency has said.

The deportees arrived through Hi-Fly chartered Airbus 330 with registration number CS-TQW at Murtala Muhammed International Airport at about 8:50p.m.

They were received on arrival by officials of NEMA, the Nigerian Immigration Service and the Nigerian Police, among others.

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

Onimode who represented the DG of NEMA, Alhaji Mohammed Sidi, said the agency would make sure they got to their various destinations and also urged 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,” he added.
