A deportation agreement between President Muhammadu Buhari and the United Kingdom would result in the removal of criminals and illegal immigrants from Nigeria.

The majority of individuals deported were originally from Nigeria, although it wasn’t clear if this applied to everyone who was anticipated to be brought in from the UK.

Home Secretary Priti Patel used the memorandum of understanding as an illustration of Brexit Britain’s new immigration policies on Thursday, calling it a “landmark accord.”

According to official figures, there are 9,815 foreign offenders imprisoned in the UK.

The Boris Johnson-led administration claimed that Britain had in its “New Plan for Immigration,” which was unveiled in March, “taken back control of our legal immigration system by ending free movement and introducing a new points-based immigration system.”

The policy manual said, “The UK now decides who comes to our country based on the skills people have to offer, not where their passport is from,” 

The first group of deportees departed the UK for Nigeria and Ghana, according to a Forbes story from Thursday. According to Forbes, eight Ghanaians arrived in Ghana after 13 Nigerians were deported to Lagos and the airplane continued to Ghana.

“The UK only ever returns individuals to their country of origin when the Home Office and, where applicable, the courts deem it is safe to do so. All asylum and human rights claims are carefully considered in accordance with our international obligations. Each individual assessment is made against the background of relevant case law and the latest country information,” According to a Home Office official, Forbes.

After the Home Office revealed intentions to transfer asylum seekers to Rwanda in April, discussions of deportation and migration from the UK have become common.

Under the Rwanda plan, anyone seeking refuge in the UK who had traveled across the English Channel would have taken a trip to Rwanda and applied for asylum there. The plan, according to the government, would deter others from traveling over the Channel.

Due to the involvement of the European Court of Human Rights, the plans have been put on hold.
