The Coordinator of the National Information Centre (NIC), Mr. Mike Omeri, yesterday announced that Nigeria had repatriated 82 foreigners over what it described as nefarious activities that might undermine the country’s security.
The foreigners, who were repatriated from Jos include Chadians, Nigerien and Senegalese.
Speaking during a security briefing along side with the representatives of security forces, in Abuja, Omeri said those nationals repatriated were jobless.
According to him, “We wish to inform the media of the recent repatriation from Jos of a number of nationals of Chadian, Nigeriene and Senegalese origins for nefarious activities that could undermine the security of Nigeria.”
On the fight against terrorism, Omeri said that the Nigeria’s military had successfully executed military operations from active intelligence on Boko haram.
“As a result of the ongoing military training and a newly established intelligence sharing mechanism, Nigeria’s military has executed successful military operations from active intelligence on Boko Haram positions and will continue to make these positive gains against the group with new aerial equipment providing wide territorial coverage and increased response capability,” he said.
