Nigerian Immigration service will soon start the deportation of foreigners living in Nigeria illegally which will be followed by a new policy planned by the country’s immigration service which includes granting residence permit to those from other countries
Muhammad Babban Dede who is the controller general of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) said that the policy would commence in the next three months.
According to Babban Dede, the policy is as a result of the escalating level of insecurity going on in the country.
According to him, any of these foreigners who failed to possess his residence permit before the expiration of the stipulated time would be deported.
However, the immigration boss said his organization would continue to protect the sovereignty of the country adding that the Nigerian immigration service (NIS) had taken steps to make it safe for businesses to thrive in the country.
