500 Nigerians were repatriated from Gabon on August 7th over allegations of having illegal travel papers. The Nigerians repatriated said they were
not given fair hearing by the courts in Gabon after they were accused and hurriedly charged before their courts. Officials of the Nigerian Immigration Service were on hand to receive the Nigerians. The returnees were examined to ascertain their health status before being allowed to cross into Nigeria.
