A Pakistani, Sahid Mahmood who was smuggled into Nigeria through a bush path in Etung, a border community with Cameroon is to be thoroughly screened by the Nigeria Immigration Service and other security agencies to ensure he is not on the wanted list of any country before he is repatriated.

The Cross River State Comptroller of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Mrs Funke Adeuyi told journalists in her office in Calabar on Friday that Sahid was smuggled on motor cycle through a bush path into Etung from where he went to Ikom and was on his way to Lagos when he was intercepted by border Immigration officials at the village of Yahe, in Yala Local Government Area of the state.

“We are collaborating with other security agencies to thoroughly screen the man to make sure he is not on the wanted list of any country before he is sent back to his country because we have to be vigilant during this critical time in the country why somebody from Paskistan should want to come into the country through bush path.”

Mrs. Adeuyi said the man was arrested along with a Cameroonian accomplice, Nji Hagis Chi who said he met Sahid at the bus station in Ikom and decided to function as his guide to Lagos where he was going for an undisclosed reason.

“He was not found with anything incriminating but had enough hard currency on him to do anything he wanted to do so we are wary of his movement in Nigeria because he has no reason to be in this country.”

She said the man only had documents that took him to the Duala Airport in Cameroon but was smuggled into Nigeria suspiciously therefore thorough security checks would be carried out on him and his accomplice, the Cameroonian before they are repatriated to their countries.

According to her, there are several illegal routes through which people access the country and warned motorist to desist from aiding and abetting those who come into the country through illegal routes owing to obvious security risk.
