The planned deportation of 29,000 Nigerians from the United Kingdom (UK) has been look into by the House of Representatives.

[dropcap type=”1″]R[/dropcap]ita Orji (PDP, Lagos), who raised the issue as a matter of urgent public importance, said it was expedient for the House to address the deportation which, she described as not justified.

She lamented that most of the Nigerians marked for deportation have spent a minimum of 30 years and have lost touch with the country.

According to her, the deportation was a result of migration crisis created by troubled regions around the world.

The motion was unanimously adopted after it was put to a voice vote by the presiding officer,  Deputy Speaker Yussuff Lasun.
