COVID-19 LOCKDOWN: 13 TOGO RETURNEES ARRIVE NIGERIA
Thirteen Nigerians have arrived into the country from Lome, Togo at Seme-Krake joint border post.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the spokesman of the Nigeria Immigration Service(NIS), Sunday James, on Sunday, 26th April.
The statement hinted that the returnees were technicians that went to install industrial machines in Togo.
In line with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control directives and compliance to the measures to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the country, the returnees have been handed over to the Ministry of Health in Lagos for medical screening.
However, the NIS has said it will not hesitate to apprehend anyone who tries to enter into the country through the Seme-Krake joint border as it is a point of entry and exit into Nigeria bordering the Benin Republic.
The NIS Comptroller-General, Mr. Muhammad Babandede, has advised returnees to stop following unauthorized entries into the country, adding that returnees might fall victim to an attack by criminals.
