Barely 48 hours after the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) attack on former senate president Ike Ekweremadu,The German government has deported a new batch of Nigerian migrants.

Reports has it that the migrants had already left the Frankfurt Airport at 8a.m and are expected at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport between 2p.m and 3p.m.

The number of migrants deported was not ascertained as at the time of this report, it was however, gathered that they were picked randomly from different accommodation centres.

It would be recalled that last month two batches of Nigerians were sent back home from the European country.

“The flight will be from Frankfurt on Monday.

“Those who will be deported will be picked randomly from their different accommodation centres from 3 a.m. till 5 a.m. in different regions and conveyed to a central place and finally to Frankfurt Airport,” the Co-ordination Activist for Network Refugees 4Refugees, a political platform for refugees and migrant self-organisation based in Stuttgart, Germany, Rex Osa, told The Nation.

Osa added, “When their asylum application is already expired, they are obligated to leave the country.

“For those who don’t leave voluntarily, they will be given what I can translate in English to mean toleration status. This status is not a resident title; it is to show that the person is still there because the deportation is hindered because of one reason or the other.

“These people are picked up early in the morning without expecting the police.

“Some would be picked up from work also. When the police arrive in their rooms, they would be allowed to pack things not more than say 64 kilos. The police will be standing to make sure the person does not escape.”

He urged the federal government to come to the aid of the victims as many of them are coming with a myriad of challenges.
