South Africa deports 97 Nigerians
The South African Government has deported 97 Nigerians for committing various offences in the country.
This comes after property of several Nigerians and other sub-Saharan Africans have been destroyed across South Africa in xenophobic attacks .
While asking its citizens to stop the attacks, the South African government has also blamed illegal immigrants from Nigeria and other countries, as well immigrants who commit crime for the attacks.
The 97 deported Nigerians landed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos on Monday night in a chartered aircraft with the registration number GBB710 from Johannesburg.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that they were made up of 95 males and two females.
