Egyptian Authorities To Deport 7 Nigerians Over #EndSARS Protest

Following the #EndSARS protest in Egypt by 8 Nigerians in early October, the Egyptian authorities have said that they will be deported for protesting without a permit.

The Nigerian Embassy in Cairo has intervened in order to secure their release, but the Egyptian authorities have since discovered that 7 of them do not have residency permit and therefore they are going to deport them.
