The Cable reports that the deportees arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMlA), Lagos around 5:50 am, today.

Comprising of 30 males and five females, the deportees were reportedly brought back aboard a chartered Titanic Airways aircraft with registration Number: G-POWO.

Spokesman of the Lagos airport police command, Joseph Alabi, confirmed the development.

Officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the police reportedly received the deportees.

Officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) were also on ground to receive them.

The Cable reports that the deportees were each profiled by the immigration authorities and given a stipend to facilitate their transportation to their respective states.

This news comes barely two months after the British authorities deported 23 Nigerians for similar reasons.
