Immigration uncovers 1,272 illegal routes


Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Mohammed Babadede

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), at the weekend, said it had identified 1,272 illegal routes into the country.

The development, according to the agency, was posing threat to lives and property, regretting that these illegal foreigners were being shielded by people inhabiting the border areas of Niger, Chad and Cameroon to allegedly perpetrate criminal activities.

NIS spokesman, Madugu Prince, who spoke at an event to mark the International Day of Peace (INDP) in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, maintained that not until the challenge was overcome, criminal activities would keep thriving at the border areas thus consolidating the insecurity of lives and property.

“The society provides cover for foreigners to perpetrate criminal activities in the border areas,” he stated.
