At least 38 Nigerians deported from the United Kingdom will arrive in Lagos today according to authorities in Nigeria.

Those deported to Nigeria include mothers and grandmothers.

Some members of LGBTQ+ communities seeking asylum are also part of the deportees.

Some of the deportees claimed they have lived in the United Kingdom for many years.

They are expected to arrive in Lagos early this morning with one Home Office charter flight.

However, the Nigeria Ministry of Foreign Affairs told BBC that the deportation was based on Immigration-related offenses.
