Nigerian detained in Sylhet for illegally entering Bangladesh from India
Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) have detained a 31-year-old Nigerian national in Sylhet for allegedly entering Bangladesh illegally from India.
The detainee has been identified as Onibukuu Staley.
Acting on a tip-off, members of Sylhet 46 BGB -- led by Naik Subedar Md Suruj Mia -- took positions behind the Tamabil land port in Gowainghat upazila last night.
The Nigerian national allegedly crossed over to Bangladesh illegally from India when a storm started around 9:30pm yesterday. Sensing the presence of BGB, he tried to flee. But the BGB personnel nabbed him after a brief chase.
The process of handing him over to the Gowainghat police is currently underway, BGB sources said.
