Germany to repatriate 12,000 Nigerians seeking asylum

The German government has begun plans to deport 12,000 Nigerians, who are seeking assylum in the country.

This was revealed by the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Diaspora Affairs, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Tuesday.

Dabiri who was represented by her Special Assistant on Media, Abdul-Rahman Balogun, said the German Embassy in Nigeria informed her about the plan.

She also added that about 128 Nigerians died while trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea.

“Just some days ago, 128 Nigerians died in the Mediterranean sea out of 576. Most of them were from West African countries and they were on their way to Europe.

“Now, this is an unfortunate incident and I think it is better to remain in Nigeria and keep struggling, instead of making desperate journeys that could take their lives,” Dabiri said.
