Sweden expels 36 migrants from Nigeria.36 migrants from Nigeria, including some children, have been removed from Sweden.

On Wednesday, November 8, 2023, representatives of the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI) met the migrants at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

The migrants' repatriation was made easier by International Returns and Reintegration Assistance (IRARA).

The dignity kits, which included diapers, toothpaste, shirts, towels, toothpaste, toothbrushes, slippers, lotions, and bags, were provided to the returnees by IRARA along with a N158,000 stipend apiece.

What might have caused the deportation was addressed by Ambassador Catherine Udida, the Commission's Director of Migrant Affairs.

Normally, someone would have gotten in touch with them to let them know that their visa had expired or that they had overstayed.

"The country begins processing their deportation because it is different from those who come back voluntarily," the statement reads. "They would have been informed to leave, and if after one or two trials they are given the opportunity to return and they (migrants) refuse to return."

According to Udida, each deportee has been profiled, and the most vulnerable have been found.

“We will also send them to the various shelters we have and keep counselling them to accept the fact that they are back home and they have opportunities to start their lives.

"If they had arrived voluntarily, they often go through a training program with financial assistance and are given access to a livelihood support program. However, since they were deported, it is our responsibility as a government to ensure that they have a comfortable life.

According to her, whether or not migrants are deported, they are typically held for two weeks or even up to a year while receiving economic support.
