Three Nigerians, including a child, have been detained in Sylhet for illegally entering Bangladesh from India, officials said Thursday.

The detainees have been identified as Emmanuel Nnamdi Ohagwam, 42, his three-and-a-half-year-old daughter, and Paul Ebeodi Okechukwu, 27.

Acting on a tip-off, a team of intelligence agencies nabbed the trio from near the Tamabil land port on Thursday morning.

A laptop, nine mobile phone handsets, three passports, a driving licence, an Indian Aadhaar card, a Nigerian ID card, $1,600, and ₹280 in cash were seized from the detainees.

Later, they were handed over to the Gowainghat police station.

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Gowainghat police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Parimal Dev said that the Nigerian nationals “are now being questioned.”

Earlier on June 29, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) detained a 31-year-old Nigerian national in Sylhet for allegedly sneaking into Bangladesh from India through the Tamabil land port.
