Germany is finalizing arrangements to deport close to 30,000 Nigerians whose asylum applications have been rejected.
Senior Special Adviser to the President on diaspora and foreign affairs, Abike Dabiri–Erewa, who made this known, said a date has not been fixed for the proposed deportation.
The presidential aide explained that German officials said, they have between 25, 000 to 30, 000 applications from Nigerian migrants seeking political asylum, and that the request may not likely be granted.
She said, some of the migrants from the south west and south east claimed in their asylum applications that they are escaping from Boko Haram attacks.
Others, according to Dabiri Erewa, claimed they are being persecuted in Nigeria because they are homosexuals.
