The returnees were in two categories.
About 40 Nigerians repatriated from the U.K. in the monthly repatriation exercise arrived in Lagos on Wednesday, Lawal Isah, Head of Immigration at the Nigerian High Commission in the U.K., has said.
The repatriation of the Nigerians is jointly organised by the Nigerian High Commission and the U.K. Border Agency.
Mr. Isah said in London that the returnees were in two categories — those without legal rights to remain in the UK and those who have been repatriated after having served various prison terms.
He said two officials of the High Commission and the U.K. Border Agency usually accompanied the returnees.
A similar exercise last month also saw 40 Nigerians being repatriated from the U.K. and Ireland.
