Border closure is good for Nigeria’s security, says NIS Comptroller General

Mr Mohammed Babandede, the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Immigration Service has stated that the closure of Nigeria’s borders is good for the nation’s security.

This statement was made by Customs boss while speaking on Channels Television’s Newsnight.

Babandede stressed the need for better cooperation with other neighbouring countries to tackle illegal entry and criminal activities.

The comptroller added that neighbouring countries understood the political will of the current administration when the country’s borders were shut for 12 months.

He said;

“It is good Nigeria closes its borders. It is good Nigeria muzzles up a little bit to show that we are a country and that we care about our security and economy

“Nigeria has spoken with a political voice through actions that is why you see greater cooperation from our neighbours.

“I am glad in terms of immigration, within the period we closed the borders, we have received a lot of people who have left our territory through the unlawful path. Those people, we have taken to court and prosecuted them.”
