The Federal Government has insisted that any undocumented migrant that fails to take part in the e-registration of the Nigeria Immigration Service will be deported after the January 12 2020 deadline.
The NIS spokesman, Sunday James who made this known to journalists via a phone call also noted that any Nigerian who engaged undocumented migrants as employees could be sentenced to seven years in jail and fined N1m by the court as from January 2020.
James further admonished Nigerians who employed undocumented migrants to encourage them to register with the NIS in order to avoid the stiff sanctions awaiting defaulters.
