NAN reports that the deportees, comprising 10 males and one female, arrived at the Hajj Camp area of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at 7.10 p.m.

They were received by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency and the Lagos Airport Police Command.

The spokesperson of the command, DSP Joseph Alabi, confirmed the deportation to NAN.
