Nigerian Immigration Service is to begin the electronic registration of non-Nigerians residing in Ogun State, as part of measures to tackle internal security challenges.
The State Immigration Comptroller, Doris Braihamah, says the registration exercise will kick off next week, after the launch of the exercise in Abeokuta.
Braihamah announced the proposed exercise at a sensitization programme for nationals from Benin, Togo, Ghana, and Niger Republic in Abeokuta.
All migrants residing in the state, according to the Comptroller, should take advantage of the six month amnesty granted by President Muhammadu Buhari for all foreigners to present themselves for registration.
She says anyone whose bio data are not captured within the stipulated time will be arrested.
Braihamah explains that the bio data will equip the agency with a record of immigrants living in the state, and will be shared with other security agencies.
The state Comptroller who promised that those who entered the state illegally will not be repatriated, urged them to take advantage of the six months amnesty given by the president to register.
