FG rescues two Nigerians stranded in Kenya

Two Nigerians, Adams John and Victor Obialu, who were stranded in Kenya as a result of irregular migration and visa overstay, have arrived Abuja on Friday.

Mr John, had travelled to Kenya in 2017 and was arrested for visa overstay which earned him a six month imprisonment while Obialu was also imprisoned for passport and visa irregularities.

The duo were officially received by Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM).

Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement, stressed that irregular migration and improper documentation should be totally discouraged and avoided, and urged Nigerians to be law-abiding whenever and wherever they find themselves.

She further advised Nigerians to take visa guidelines and policies of other countries seriously to avoid prosecution.

Meanwhile, Adams and Victor, after narrating their ordeals which include a six-month jail term, urged Nigerians to be cautious of laws of host countries.

“All our prayers was that we came back home. The stress we went through is not worth it. My advice to all Nigerians is to be cautious of all the laws and order,” they said.
