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.
