The illegal immigrant was on his way to Lagos when he was intercepted by border Immigration officials at the village of Yahe, in Yala Local Government Area of the state.

 “We are collaborating with other security agencies to thoroughly screen the man to make sure he is not on the wanted list of any country before he is sent back to his country because we have to be vigilant during this critical time in the country why should somebody from Paskistan want to come into the country through bush path," she asked.

Mrs Adeuyi said the man was arrested along with a Cameroonian accomplice, Nji Hagis Chi who said he met Sahid at the bus station in Ikom and decided to function as his guide to Lagos where he was going for an undisclosed reason.

Stating that although the man was not found with anything incriminating, the security agencies would still properly question him to ascertain whether he is wanted by any country or not.
