The Ministry of Interior has revealed that the Nigerian government has deported 70 foreign nationals within the last two years.
This was stated in a document released by the Minister of Interior Rauf Aregbesola on Friday.
The foreigners who were deported based on various offences include individuals from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Egypt, and Sri Lanka, among others.
The Minister further noted that plans had been concluded to establish an Institute of Domestic Security to boost the internal security of the nation.
He added that a 45-hectare land had been secured in Ilesa, Osun State for the take-off of the institute saying the lack of such an institution had created a significant gap in the capacity of paramilitary institutions and other security institutions in the country.
