Oct 15, 2013 – 534 Nigerian Criminals In British Jail Set For Deportation

Over 500 Nigerian prisoners will be sent home to serve out prison sentences under a deal set to be struck by ministers within weeks. Talks are continuing into reaching a compulsory prisoner transfer agreement, which could see more than half of the 500 criminals from Nigeria currently in UK jails repatriated. According to information made available to MailOnline, Justice Minister Mr Wright said:

 ‘I am clear that more foreign prisoners must serve their sentences in their own countries. That is why we are currently working with the Nigerian Government on a compulsory prisoner transfer agreement to increase the number of prisoners who are transferred.

‘Legislation allowing Nigeria to enter such an arrangement was passed earlier this year by the Nigerian Parliament. We are now working with them on the text of a final agreement.’

Latest figures show there were 534 Nigerian nationals in British jails, 485 men and 49 women. Nigerians account for one in 20 of all foreign prisoners, putting the country fifth in the league table of nations whose citizens have been jailed in the UK. It costs an average of around £40,000 a year to keep inside.

  3. MILLION OF AFRICAN TRAVEL ,ONLY TO FIND THEMSELVES FROM AIRPORT TO JAIL FOR MANY YEARS , AND THEN DEPORT THEM BACK, IT IS NOT A PLACE FOR US AT ALL, EVEN YOU WHO IS FREE, ARE LIKE A PRISONERS, BECAUSE YOU WAKE UP 4 AM , ONLY TO GO AND WASH THE TOILET AND MOP THE FLOOR FROM OYINGBO TO SURULERE, WHEN YOU FINISHED THE EARLY MORNING , YOU GO FROM THERE FOR ANOTHER SHIT JOB , YOU WORK AS A HOME CARE , THE AGENCY TELL YOU TO DO THE JOB OF TWO HOURS , FOR 30MTS, AND YOU HAVE TO TRAVEL HERE AND THERE TO REACH WHERE TO WORK , AND WHEN FINALY ARRIVE TO CARE FOR THE ELDERLY , YOUR BOSS WANT YOU TO WASH , DRESS, TAKE HIM OR TO TOILET , PREPARE THE BREAKFAST, ALL THESE UNDER 30MTS , AND YOU ARE ASKED TO SIGN THAT YOU FINISHED THE JOB, INFACT I FEEL VERY SAD , IT IS A MODERN DAY SLAVERY, WHAT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND IS THE WAY THE AFRICAN USE THEIR MONEY TO PARTY ALL THE TIME WITHOUT THINKING OF WHEN TO INVEST IT , THIS TYPES OF ATTITUDE IS CAUSING THE OYINBO TO MAKE ALL SORT OF LAW, THE LAW IS CHANGING BECAUSE OF SOME NIGERIAN VULGARITY, AND THEY ARE LOUSY, AND BEHAVE LIKE OMO AIJOBERI, BECAUSE OF THIS , ONE OF MY FRIENDS HAD JUST BEEN DEPORTED WITH HER HUSBAND , AFTER EIGHTEEN YEARS IN UK WITHOUT PAPER, INSTEAD OF SPENDING MONEY ON HOW TO GET PAPER, THEY SPEND IT ON PARTIES ALL THE TIME. SO I DO NOT REALLY BLAME THE SLAVE MASTER, I BLAME OURSELVES, BECAUSE WE WANT GOOD THING, AND WE WANT IT FOR NOTHING.

  4. I hope these guys get the chance to turn a new leaf. Everybody deserves a second chance. Except killers, paedophiles and rapists.

  5. @ Mrs Eranko, yes people clean toilets etc. First and foremost, before travelling abroad, make sure you have your stay. Then go back to school. America prefer you have a certificate from their country, they kind of down grade any certificate from other countries. Please if you decide you staying, then go back to school, you can get financial aid, etc. It is very easy to further education here. Then you can get a better job than cleaning toilets.
