Illegal Immigrants Could Decide Nigeria Elections

Illegal Immigrants Could Decide Nigeria Elections

Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) have arrested more illegal immigrants in different parts of Nigeria ahead of March general elections. Most of these illegal aliens are from other African countries. Those arrested will be repatriated within 24 hours. However, those immigrants who made it across are still in the thousands and they could decide Nigeria Presidential elections in March.

NIS chairman also warned foreigners in the state to steer clear from voting during the forthcoming elections, stressing that any of them caught would be dealt with according to the law.

"Any foreigner who under false declaration is found in possession of the Permanent Voter Cards or Nigeria national identity card with a view to partaking in the election process shall be severely dealt with in accordance with the law," Isang said.
