Egyptian authorities will deport seven Nigerians for showing solidarities with anti-police brutality protesters back home and holding a demonstration in Cairo, the North African country capital.

The demonstrations were held in Cairo on 18 October. The Nigerians were arrested for protesting against bad governance and police brutality and have since been detained.

Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), made this known in a series of tweets.

She said, “The Egyptian authorities have said that seven out of the eight Nigerians who protested in Egypt on 18 October, will be deported to Nigeria for lack of resident permits/visas.

“The only Nigerian among them who has a residency will get final clearance from the Egyptian Interior Minister, Mahmoud Tawfik, after signing an undertaking not to be involved in unauthorized activities while still in the country.

“Current situation of Nigerians arrested in Egypt for protesting without a permit.

“Everyone has a right to protest, but we appeal to our people abroad to follow the laws of that country as we continue to do all we can to get the Nigerians released.”
