The deportees were transported from Turkiye to Nigeria via Southwind Airlines flight TCGRB.

The NEMA Director General, Mrs. Zubaida Umar, cautioned the returnees to respect the law and accept their experience in good faith.
To ease their experience and allay the Federal Government’s concerns about their situation, the returnees were treated with dignity, according to the DG NEMA, who was represented by Alhaji Bashir Garga, Director, North Central Zone.

Umar declared that they would have assistance with their transportation to their different locations in the form of token financial support.

Following their screening by Port Health Authority representatives, they underwent profiling conducted by NEMA and NCFRMI. Following clearance by NIS, they were provided with transportation to facilitate their journey to their designated destinations.

Officials from the Nigerian Immigration Service, the National Commission for Refugees, Migrant and Internally Displaced Persons, and the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons joined forces to receive the deportees.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, the Nigeria Police Force, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, and the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria are the others.

There were also representatives from the National Intelligence Agency and the Port Health Authority.
