NIS Lagos Airport reunites mentally unstable deportee with father


A deportee 22 years of age deported from Cyprus with mental issues has been reunited with his father after three days in the care of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) at the Lagos International Airport.

The deportee, Osagie Favour Aigbonghiamon who came in aboard Turkish airline flight on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 was said to have been sent to Cyprus to continue his education without any traces of mental problems.

The father of the deportee, Mr. Lucky Osagie, who is based in Warri, Delta State after being handed his son, expressed gratitude to the immigration officials at the airport for locating him after three days of frantic search.

 “The immigration at the airport have performed very satisfactorily. I want the other security agencies in the country to emulate the service. The immigration at the Lagos airport have showed to be their brother’s keeper. This is very surprising and worthy of emulation”.

“The father said, “The boy clocked 22 years old this April. I spoke with him about three weeks ago when he told me he was looking for an accommodation and about the same time, he told the mum that he has seen a black agent whom he would be staying with”.

“He travelled to Cyprus last November for education. He never had any bad behaviour in Nigeria. The only thing I know is that he was having an issue with his agent on accommodation”, he added.

“He didn’t return with anything from Cyprus. I need to get his documents because he needs to continue with his education. He has always had the plan to school abroad. As it is now, he is not emotionally balanced with the current situation.”
