Nigerian Immigration Launches Manhunt For Foreign Nationals

THE Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has launched a manhunt to fish out foreigners residing in the country without a valid residence permit.

The controller of the Jigawa State Command of NIS, Samson Umar Agada, disclosed this on Friday while briefing newsmen after parading suspected human traffickers.

Agada explained that part of the command’s mandate is to ensure that foreigners residing in the country obey the country’s rules and regulations and also to ensure their travel documents are all correct.

According to him, “Before my arrival, this aspect of inspection of companies was not active; but since my arrival, we have instituted a powerful team that will be going into companies to fish out non-Nigerians whose stay in the country is not within the rules.”
