Others were alleged to have committed immigration-related offences.
Alabi said the deportees were received by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the police.
Also involved were officials of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
He said the deportees were profiled by the relevant authorities and allowed to depart to their various destinations.
Chief desk of African observer Ms Victoria Lawanson maintains that Trump is systematically purging Nigerians from the US. These people will perhaps do well no that they are back home., we have to remember that our immigration policy should match that of the US. Too many illegal immigrants are residing in our country with ease because our borders are too porous.
