    Nigeria has approved the immediate deportation of 36 Indians and two Democratic People’s Republic of Korea nationals with immediate effect.

    The Minister of Interior, retired Lt.- Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau, gave the order on Tuesday.

    The Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr. Mohammed Umar, said the minister signed the deportation order in pursuant to section 45(2, 3 and 4) of the Nigeria Immigration Act 2015.

    Umar explained that the Indian nationals gained entry into the country with fake visas and counterfeit Immigration stamps, while the Korean nationals failed to regularise their stay upon the expiration of their contract with Zamfara Government.

    He gave the names of the affected nationals as Mr. An Chun Sik and Mr. Jon Su Syong of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

    He reiterated President Muhammadu Buhari’s determination to empower the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) to enhance enforcement of the nation’s Immigration Laws.

    All foreign nationals, he said, should operate within the provisions of the law as the nation would not compromise its immigration laws.
