Dr Onimode Bamidele, the Deputy Director, Search and Rescue, NEMA, who represented the Director-General of NEMA, Alhaji Mohammed Sidi said the agency would make sure the deportees were comfortable and ensure their safe return to their various destinations. “As a responsible government, we cannot just leave our citizens to enter the country without giving them a good welcome" he said.
