97 Nigerians deported from South Africa


About 97 Nigerians have been deported from South Africa for alleged civil and criminal offences.

The deportees – 95 males and two females – arrived at Murtala Muhammed International Airport from Johannesburg on Monday night.

Those accused of criminal offences were handed over to the police for prosecution, while those accused of committing civil offences were allowed to go home.

This is coming a few days after a South African mob attacked Nigerians and their businesses in the country.

The Nigerian government condemned the attacks, and also threatened consequences if they are not checked.
