The Lagos State Comptroller of Immigration, Mr Aliyu Dangana, has sought the support of the Mushin Local Government Chairman, Mr Emmanuel Bamigboye, to curb the influx of illegal immigrants from neighbouring countries.
Dangana made the appeal when he visited the council chairman on Tuesday in Lagos.
According to him, the cooperation of the local government would go a long way to check the influx of irregular immigrants and the threats they posed to security.
The comptroller urged the council to sensitise residents to identify and report strange and suspicious faces to the immigration office for action.
“The cooperation of the local government would help identify illegal immigrants and help check threats posed by them.
“We advise the public to use our new platform to apply for passports, as local government authorities will be fully integrated into the process through the issuance of certificates of recognition to applicants.
“We request office accommodation to enable our officials to operate effectively in Mushin local government.
“We also promise to tackle all the challenges and complaints of the people of Mushin about passport issuance through the office,” he said.
