The Federal Government has deported seven nationals of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) back to their country.

The deportees, who allegedly attempted to undermine national security, were also banned from returning to Nigeria for life.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by Mr. Sunday James, the public relations officer of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) on Wednesday, October 16, 2019. The statement reads:

“The Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service Muhammad Babandede, has carried out the deportation of the following seven Democratic People’s Republic of Korea DPRK nationals from Nigeria for life.

‘They are; Jo Sun Phil, Hang Sung Chol, Che Chun Hyok and Pak Yong Gon. Others are Ri Yong Il, Ri Hak Su and Ri Tong Nam.

“They were deported by the order of the Honourable Minister Of Interior based on the powers conferred on him by the Immigration Act 2015.

“They were deported to their country of origin on the available flight on the 15th October 2019 through Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.”

Meanwhile, Ghana’s Foreign Minister and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey have asked the federal government to reciprocate its diplomatic effort by opening its borders to allow goods from her country into Nigeria.

Botchwey said goods from Nigeria are entering Ghana, but Nigeria closed its borders, and Ghanaian traders have incurred huge losses because their goods have been detained for weeks at the Seme border.
