Nigerian footballers to be deported

Justice K. Thankappan ordered that three Africans football players arrested for not having valid travel documents be deported to their countries.

The court directed the Thrissur Superintendent of Police to hand them over to the Nigerian High Commissioner, New Delhi, for deportation. They were now lodged in sub-jail, Ernakulam.

According to them, they had come for playing football in Thrissur. They were arrested in May in Thrissur and released on bail only to be arrested again soon.
