An airplane carrying 500 Nigerians deported from the United Kingdom has arrived at Murtala Muhammad International Airport, in Lagos and we bring you the photos.
According to BBC Africa, about 500 deportees arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos this morning on a chartered flight from London.
Most of the deportees say they are not happy to come back. One person told a reporter that he was arrested by British police and was not allowed to even take his belongings before being deported.
While a few of them who say they don't have relatives here are stranded in the airport.
It can be recalled that recently, the Nigerian Government expressed concern over UK's plan to deport 29,000 Nigerians, and has insisted that due process be followed before the deportation.
The BBC's Umar Shehu Elleman in Lagos, has taken the below photos of some of the Nigerians deported from the UK.
