THE Bureau of Immigration (BI) reported the arrest of two illegal aliens in Metro Manila, both of whom will be deported for violating the country’s immigration laws.
Citing a report from the BI Intelligence Division, Immigration Commissioner Norman Tangsinco identified the aliens as Nigerian national Ikechukwu John Shedrack, 37, and Korean Dae Heom Kwon, 31.
Shedrack was arrested last Dec. 12 outside the Hall of Justice building in Mandaluyong City, where he had just attended a court hearing on his case, while Kwon was nabbed the next day inside a bar along Kamias Rd., Quezon City.
Shedrack is allegedly an “overstaying” alien and has been using various aliases to conceal his real identity.
Kwon, on the other hand, is also an overstaying alien arrested last Dec. 13 and is reportedly the subject of a summary deportation order issued by the BI board of commissioners.
Both aliens are currently detained at the BI detention facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City, while awaiting deportation.
They will be placed on the immigration blacklist and banned from reentering the Philippines. By Jun I. Legaspi and Hector Lawas
