No fewer than 26 irregular migrants from Cameroon and Burkina Faso were arrested at a hotel in Afua village in Uzaure, Etsako West local government area of Edo State, following credible intelligence received by the police.

The suspects include 16 males and eight females from Cameroonians, and a male and a female from Burkina Faso.

According to the Edo Police Command spokesman, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, the suspects were arrested at a hotel in Afua village in Uzaure, Etsako West local government area of the State, following a credible intelligence received by the DPO of Jattu divisional police headquarters.

“Upon interrogation, it was discovered that they could not effectively express themselves in the English language. The little they could say was to identify their own country and that is how we were able to know the numbers from each country.

“They confessed that a certain young man brought them to Nigeria through the Cameroon border,”
Nwabuzor said.

The police image maker added that the suspects would be handed over to the Nigeria Immigration Service after being profiled.

A man who described himself simply as an excavator operator, however, claimed that he brought the suspected irregular migrants into Nigeria to join him in his excavation contract.

He further claimed that he had lived and worked in Cameroon before.

Ah-ah!So undocumented immigration of people in neighbouring African countries into Nigeria is also a crime?Hehehehe.
That can only happen in southern Nigeria.In the north it is not a big deal,infact you can hardly differentiate between the northerners and the Nigeriens,Chadians,Malians etc.They even intermarry without a glitch.
