Unconfirmed number of Nigerians deported by the British authorities have arrived at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.

The affected Nigerians, who reportedly arrived aboard a chartered aircraft from London on Wednesday, were said to be the first batch of about 29,000 Nigerians awaiting deportation from the United Kingdom (UK).

Some of the deported Nigerians were said to have been staying in the UK without valid papers and were picked up by the British Police, without given the chance to take their belongings.

The deportation has generated controversy in the past weeks, with civil rights activists questioning the British Government’s decision, which they described as illegal.
