South Africa deports 100 Nigerians

A group of 100 Nigerians has arrived back in their country after being expelled from South Africa for violating immigration laws, an airport official said on Thursday.

"The Nigerians, consisting of 99 men and one woman, arrived the Murtala International airport Lagos on a chartered flight from Johannesburg yesterday," Wale Dada told AFP.

He said they were accused of living in the country without valid resident and work permits.

Last December, some 325 Nigerians were deported from Libya for similar reasons.

Hundreds of Nigerians use north Africa as a transit route to Europe and America in search of jobs.
