Officials of the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, in Kano have arrested seven Cameronians, two Ghanians, who have allegedly been roaming about the State without any legal documents indicating their nationalities.
Both the Cameronians and Ghanaians, believed to be headed to Libya, are suspected to be into trafficking and other criminal acts in Nigeria and the other West African States.
The Assistant Comptroller of Immigration in Charge of Kano State, Olaide Ishaka Yussuf, who spoke while parading the illegal foreign nationals arrested, said the intelligence units of the service uncovered the movements of the foreigners within the week
He said while the suspects were being searched by the NIS officers, it was found that the foreigners do not legal document on them and they were moving to Libya through the Daura hometown of President Buhari in Katsina State.
He further reiterated that it is expected that an immigrant must report to the immigration posts of the country he is coming from and the one he entered, adding that they have not done so.
Olaide Yussuf explained as part of their intelligence duties, the immigration has already established contact with the families of the nine illegal migrants in Cameroon and Ghana “but surprisingly must of them preferred us eliminating their sons because of the troubles they put them back in their Countries”.
He said a father of one of the illegal migrants in Ghana said that he has spent huge amount of money training his son but he refuses to be responsible rather he engaged in criminal activities resulting to his several jail terms, “therefore anything we wish to do with him including eliminating him the father approved to us”.
