The Acting Comptroller General of Immigration, Mrs Caroline Adepoju has called on Traditional and Religious Leaders to redouble efforts in educating their subjects on the risks and dangers in illegal migration.
Mrs Adepoju made the call at the end of the two day sensitization on the dangers of illegal migration in Abuja.
The Acting CG stated that the Service had increased intelligence and surveillance on the nation’s borders to curb the trend.
The Deputy Comptroller General of Immigration, Directorate of Migration, Kemi Nandap while sensitizing students, passport seekers and traders in Gwagwalada Abuja urged them to be in the forefront of the campaign against illegal migration.
According to her, lack of adequate knowledge of migration laws made many people fall victims of all sorts of abuse in foreign lands.
Some of the students who called on the government to urgently address the Japa trend advised youths to acquire skills that would help them realize their dreams as future leaders of the country.
They solicited for more sensitization especially in rural areas to help save Nigerian youths from the ills of illegal migration.
