No fewer than 38 Nigerians deported from the United Kingdom, in the early hours on Thursday, arrived in Lagos.

According to authorities in Nigeria, the deportees, who are mainly mothers and grandmothers, arrived the Murtala Muhammed international Airport, Ikeja.

They arrived in Lagos early this morning with one Home Office charter flight.

It was gathered that some members of LGBTQ communities seeking asylum were among the deportees.

Some of the deportees claimed they have lived in the United Kingdom for many years.

However, the Nigeria Ministry of Foreign Affairs told Britush Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, the deportation bothers on violation of immigration-related offences.

It was gathered that the deportees were later conveyed to yet to be ascertained locations.
