    22 Nigerians Arrested In Meghalaya For Entering India Illegally

    Two Nigerians were nabbed by East Jaintia Hills Police during a routine check-up of a night bus which was on the way to Guwahati from Agartala on October 10th, 2019

    As many as 22 Nigerian nationals were arrested by the police in Meghalaya in the past one month after they entered India illegally from Bangladesh.  

    On October 10th, 2019, two Nigerians were nabbed by police in East Jaintia Hills district during a routine check-up of a night super bus which was on the way to Guwahati from Tripura’s capital Agartala.

    Victor Ojichukwu Ugo Okeke (30) and Ifechkwu Emmanuel Obi (34), had entered India through the border with Bangladesh in Tripura. Both the Nigerian nationals failed to provide any valid document supporting their entry into India. A case under section 14/14 A/14 C Foreigner Act has been registered at the Lumshnong Police Station.

    “They have only photocopies of their passports. They claimed to have kept their original passport in Bangladesh and entered into India via Tripura after crossing the international boundary,” said Vivekanand Singh, Superintendent of Police, East Jaintia Hills.  

    With these arrests, East Jaintia Hills police have arrested 19 foreign nationals in last one month. “We are keeping a strict round the clock watch to thwart any such attempts in future,”
     he said.

    On the other hand, three Nigerian nationals operating with similar modus operandi have been arrested in West Jaintia Hills district for entering India illegally from Bangladesh. Police also arrested four local residents for aiding the foreign nationals.

    The Nigeria nationals have been identified as Chukwuma Oknuwa (35), Lucky Osas Moses Enebi (35) and Chine Ndubuisi Moses. The arrested local residents are: Ronaldo Syndai (21), Ni Pohleng (20), Kliar Mon Pohthmi (18) and Rihok Chyrmang (28).

    Police said that the three Nigerian nationals entered Meghalaya via Bangladesh after crossing a stream on the international border.

    They were travelling in Chevrolet Spark and going towards Guwahati. They were intercepted during checking when they were proceeding towards Amlarem.  The vehicle was provided by the local villagers.

    “During our investigation, we found that these Nigerian nationals are basically cybercriminals. And secondly, they are into the business of luring the local girls on the pretext of love, marriage. They first win the trust of the girls and later start blackmailing for money. The racket is operating from Bangladesh. They are also entering India illegally due to stricter visa norms enforced by New Delhi,” said police sources.
