Three million Nigerians illegally living in UK – Senate
Senate President, Bukola Saraki

The Senate on Thursday said  no fewer than three million Nigerians are currently living illegally in the United Kingdom and that its investigation had shown that the British government had no plan to deport 29, 000 Nigerians by the British government as reported recently.
Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs,  Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, stated this  after a meeting with officials of the Nigeria Immigration Service  at the National Assembly.
She explained that the Asst. Deputy Comptroller – General,  Investigations, Intelligence and Enforcement,  of the NIS,   Mr. T. A   Hundeyin, also confirmed that the 48 Nigerians recently deported from the United Kingdom committed various types of crimes and had served prison terms.
Sunmonu said, “The Asst. Deputy Comptroller just confirmed to us now that it is not true that 29, 000 Nigerians are being deported from the United Kingdom or that the UK government intends to deport 29, 000 Nigerians.
“He (however) said that only 48 Nigerians  were deported and he had shown us their names and records that actually confirmed that they had all served their prison sentences so that is why they are being deported”
The senator added that that, “about three million Nigerians are illegally living in the United Kingdom and that if three million Nigerians are living there illegally,  and they are only removing just 48 people confirmed to have committed crime and jailed, then the situation is not too bad.”
She said, “We will not relent in our efforts on checking and doing our oversight functions. If it requires for us to go there and visit them, and to ask questions, we won’t mind to go there and to give Nigerians and to give them the history and the records of what we find out”
