The Federal Government has blamed the cases of undocumented migrants on the porousness of Nigeria’s borders.
This was made known by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who said Nigeria was meeting with stakeholders to find a solution to the issue.
Aregbesola said this during a meeting with an European Union delegation led by Ambassador to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Ketil Karlsen.
“Illegal migration is a thing of concern as it not only depletes a region of viable and reliable labour, talent and human resource, but also makes room for unplanned human presence”, he added.
He commended the EU on the Migrants Information Data Analysis System (MIDAS), adding that the system has helped with the documentation of the migrants.
