German government deport Nigerians after assault on Ekweremadu

Barely 48 hours after the attack on former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu by the members of IPOB in Nuremberg Germany, the German government has reported some Nigerian citizens who are residing in the country illegally.

According to reports, the migrants left Frankfurt Airport at 8 a.m. on Monday, August 19th and are expected to land in Nigeria’s Murtala Mohammed International Airport between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. The number of migrants deported was not ascertained as at the time of this report, it was however, gathered that they were picked randomly from different accommodation centres.

“These people are picked up early in the morning without expecting the police. Some would be picked up from work also. When the police arrive in their rooms, they would be allowed to pack things not more than say 64 kilos. The police will be standing to make sure the person does not escape.” said Rex Osa an activist and coordinator of Network Refugees 4Refugees, a political platform for refugees and migrant self-organisation based in Stuttgart, Germany.

The activist urged the federal government to come to the aid of the victims as many of them are coming with a myriad of challenges. “Among these people are many sick people. Nigeria should be expecting a lot of people who have psychological problems, and people with spinal cord problems leading to paralysis.”
