The Government of Liberia has deported four Nigerians convicted for bank robbery, following the completion of their 10-year sentence.
Onuegbu Frank Chidozie (40), Francis Ezeji (32), Chukwu Ago (44) and Kingsley Okoro (40) were committed to prison on December 14, 2010, after the court found them guilty of attacking an Ecobank branch in Kakata, Margibi County and stealing valuables and cash worth $207,799.
They were tried under Section 14.32 and 50.5 of the Penal Law of Liberia at the 13th Judicial Circuit Court.
Liberia’s Justice Minister Frank Musah Dean described the quartet as ‘undesirable aliens’ and directed the Liberia Immigration Service (LIS) Commissioner-General Robert Budy to deport them.
According to reports, the four were subsequently deported to Nigeria via Air Cote D’Ivoire.
