TIRUVANNAMALAI: Two Nigerians, lodged in the special camp for foreigners in Cheyyar, have been ordered to be deported on Monday.  

The Home Department of the State Government has issued the deportation orders for Okechukwa Udube (35) and Paul Osagie Cyrill (44) after receiving emergency certificates from the Embassy of Federal Republic of Nigeria in Delhi.

District administration officials said, they had completed the procedures to deport the duo on Sunday and they are expected to board the flights from the international airport at Meenambakkam in Chennai.

 “We obtained the letter from the SP (J Mutharasi) as per rule for the duo on Friday. After getting the letter, we arranged the air ticket for Cyrill,” special tahsildar (refugees) Jayaprakash Narayanan told  Express. He added that the district administration of Tiruppur has obtained the air tickets for Udube and his family, who were staying in Tiruppur. Udube and his family would take the 4.05 am flight to Dubai along with his family from Chennai airport. They would take transit flight from there to Lagos. Udube was arrested on August 10, 2013 by Tiruppur North Police on charges of purchasing and selling Indian Made Foreign Liquor and running a bar without permission. He was sentenced to five months imprisonment but he spent more than a year in the special camp.

Cyrill will take the 10 pm flight on Monday. He was arrested by the CCB on June 6, 2012 on charges of indulging in online fraud but charges were not proved. The police filed a fresh case relating to cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property. Again, the police failed to prove these charges. Later, the police filed a case under the Foreigners Act and lodged him in special camp.
