Two Nigerians who have been living in India Illegally for six years staged a fake fight to land themselves in jail and escape deportation, Times of India reports.
The two men Ose and Ayuvoi, however, had their plan backfired when a video of the incident went viral and caught the attention of the Indian police. .
In the video the duo is seen attacking each other with a big knife and a blunt object at Jagat Farm market.
The police said they realised that the fight was fake after they saw the video. âIn the video they are seen attacking each other. However, not a single injury was reported. .
It seems that they staged the scene to get arrested. I have personally asked the local intelligence unit (LIU) to facilitate their deportation in the next 10 days,â said Tanu Upadhyay, a circle officer 1, Greater Noida. .
Also, Charles Kennedy, a representative of an outfit working for Nigerians in India, told Times of India that the two men came to India in 2014 on tourist visas and had been living illegally since then. .
âThey knew that they were illegal citizens and in order to continue living here, they probably staged this fight. I have informed police and they will be deported to Nigeria very soon,â he said.
