Immigration Warns Nigerians Against Travelling To Niger Republic

Mustapha Sani, the Comptroller of the Jibia Special Border Command in Katsina State’s Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), has cautioned Nigerian citizens against traveling to Niger Republic.

On Thursday, August 3rd, Jibia spoke at a celebration with the Katsina State Command of the NIS commemorating their 60 years of service. He announced that the NIS will be sending personnel to monitor the Katsina border to prevent illegal crossings from the Niger Republic.

“Nigerians should stay at home and not attempt to go to the Niger Republic until the embargo is lifted. And we are determined to return any Nigerien we catch who is planning to come to this country.

“Despite the fact that we are divided by colonial masters, we share certain things in common like religion and culture, and that doesn’t guarantee them to enter Nigeria without valid documents.

“We have already put our officers on alert and we have already deployed some to go and man the orthodox routes through which some of the foreigners use to enter into Nigeria and from what we have on the ground, we know it will be impossible for them to enter into Nigeria.

“We have already stationed our officers at strategic places for stop and search as usual,” he said.
