The United Kingdom (UK) government earlier this year repatriated three Nigerians in that country’s prisons under the prisoners exchange agreement signed by the UK and Nigeria.

Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, who disclosed this, said the prisoners are now serving their time in a Nigerian prison. Moro spoke during a question and answer session with newsmen in Abuja on Thursday May 7, 2015.

He stated: “The prisoners’ exchange agreement is in place and the United Kingdom has repatriated three Nigerians in the UK prison since January this year and  more prisons would also be transferred.

“The programme would continue after the exit of this administration. There is a committee in place to ensure the sustenance of the programme.”
