The comptroller of immigration, Mrs Doris Braimah who paraded the suspects at the office of the service in Abeokuta, the state capital, says the illegal migrants include four Mali indigenes and two Guineans.

“When you aid unknown people into your country, without even knowing their aim, it is a big risk. It is actually called security threat,” Braimah said while parading the suspected.

She explained that the two suspects would be arraigned, while the six foreign nationals would be repatriated to their countries.
