Commenting on the latest deportation, the Deputy Director, Search and Rescue, NEMA, Dr. Bandele Onimode, said the deportees comprised 33 from Italy; seven from Belgium and three from Germany.

Onimode who represented the Director-General of NEMA, Alhaji Mohammed Sidi said the agency would make sure the deportees were comfortable and ensure their safe return to their various destinations.

He urged them to stay in the country and join hands with others to develop it.

"They are coming back almost empty and this is a lesson to them to settle down home and be useful to their country. We will ensure that they are well catered for," he said.
