The aircraft that brought back the deportees, Miami Air International with the registration number N733MA, touched down at the airport at exactly 12:20 local time. 


Nine of the deportees were repatriated into Nigeria for drug related offence, 26 for police case while the other six were returned for immigration offences.



Those with criminal offences were held by the respective agencies while those with immigration offences were released to go to their various destinations after going through profiling by the Nigerian Immigration Service.
