Immigration Lagos Airport reconnects returnee with family member


Officials of the Nigeria immigration Service (NIS), Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos Command has reunited a female returnee from Oman with her family.
This is coming barely after a month when the command handed over a mentally unstable male deportee, Mr. Osagie Favour to his family.

The female returnee whose name is Adepoju Oluwatoyin Ruth, arrived the country from Muscat in Oman aboard Egypt Air on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 with mental issue.
Information revealed that her name was mistakenly given as Olajide Oluwatoyin Ruth by the Egypt Air, which could not be traced in the immigration system.
The NIS airport command had to commence a search into its system to sort out her real names and was able to contact the father residing in Abuja.

Because of  her unstable condition, it was learnt that Mr. Abdullahi Dalhatu, the Comptroller, MMIA Command, ordered that the returnee be kept in the custody of Immigration for another 24 hours for better observation.
Further search into the details of the returnee indicated that she left Nigeria for Oman in 2019 and was engaged as a house maid in that country.

The sister to the returnee, Adepoju  Olamide, who came to receive her sister, expressed delight at reuniting with her sister again and confirmed that she left Nigeria in 2019 in search of greener pastures.
She also commended the immigration officials at the airport for handling the issue with utmost professionalism, saying that her respect for the service, especially the command had increased.
