Yesterday, over 50 Nigerian students were arrested in Turkey (Read HERE) upon arrival at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul, allegedly, on the orders of the government. Now, the government has commenced a massive deportation of Nigerian students in the country.

The detained Nigerians are mainly students of Fathi University, one of the 2099 schools, dormitories and universities shut down in the wake of the July 15th failed coup in Turkey.

Meanwhile, the FG of Nigeria, has summoned the Turkish ambassador to Nigeria, Hakan Cakil, over the detentions. The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Sola Enikanolaiye, said the Nigerian government expected a reasonable explanation from Cakil regarding the poor treatment of the students and directed the envoy to ensure their release without delay.506
