The Federal Government has stepped in to deal with the latest deportation orders issued in opposition to some Nigerian college students at Teesside University within the United Kingdom.

A delegation led by a consultant of the Nigerian Embassy within the UK, Ambassador Christian Okeke, together with leaders of the Nigerian Students Union within the UK, will meet with the college’s administration to hunt a decision.

This resolution follows a digital assembly chaired by the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, and attended by Okeke, the President of the Nigerian Students Union UK, Yemi Soile, and several other affected college students.

The assembly was held on Sunday.

The NiDCOM spokesperson, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, confirmed the deliberate intervention in a press release on Wednesday.

According to Balogun, throughout the assembly, the scholars described their experiences and expressed hope for a beneficial end result.

Dabiri-Erewa urged the scholars “to remain calm and not to take the law into their own hands.”

She appealed to Teesside University to deal with the scholars pretty and justly.

The situation gained consideration after some Nigerian college students at Teesside University staged a protest on May 22, 2024.

The protest was in response to directives from the college authorities for the scholars to depart the UK, citing non-payment of college charges by some college students.
