Immigration To Establish Office In Benue Border

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has approved the establishment of its office in Jato-Aka, a border town of Benue State with neighbouring Taraba in order to check irregular immigrants and suspected foreign herders behind insecurity in parts of the state.

The intention of NIS was contained in a letter written to the Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom by the Comptroller-General of the Immigration Service, Muhammad Babandede, which stated that the approval followed the governor’s request for an office in the area.

Babandede who commended governor for his commitment to ending insecurity in the affected areas, assured that the Service was making adequate arrangements to form a Special Border Patrol Squad to combat activities of illegal immigrants and herders.

The Comptroller-General further pledged the cooperation and support of the Service to the state government to enable it achieve its target of guaranteeing peace and development.
