The Nigerians are said to have no valid documents that allow them to be in East Africa and that most have expired visas.

“Over 25 Nigerians arrested today in Nairobi, Kasarani, Roysambu, Mirema area for being in the country illegally after their visa validity elapsed. Please give give report if any around your area”

Said the office in a series of tweets.

It is also reported that most Nigerians living in Kasarani and Roysambu crowd in one room before they decide to rent their own houses in fear of being caught.

The immigration office has however alerted all landlords to ask for valid documents from any foreigners seeking to rent a house in the country.

This comes a few weeks after 17 Nigerians were arrested in Mlolongo area which is located off Mombasa road.
