Immigration CG directs officers to resume border duty

The Comptroller General of Immigration (CGI), Kemi Nandap, has directed all personnel deployed to the Nigeria-Niger border to resume work.

Nandap gave the directive in a statement by the Acting Service Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr. Kenneth Kure, yesterday in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the CGI’s order followed an earlier order by the Federal Government for the reopening of the borders between the two countries which were shut down in conformity with the decision of ECOWAS.

The ECOWAS had imposed sanctions on the Niger Republic, including the closure of land and air borders, following the coup that ousted President Mahmed Bazoum.
