SECURITY: IMMIGRANTS AND DRUGS, MANGANELLI IS IN ABUJA
(AGI) - Abuja, 16 Feb. - The head of police, Antonio Manganelli, arrived in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, today, for a mission organised by the Interior Ministry. Manganelli is to return to Rome Tomorrow, after having met his Nigerian counterpart. Local sources and the Italian embassy in Abuja have said through private channels to AGI that Manganelli's visit is linked to the themes of illegal immigration and the international drugs trade. It is also probable, that there will be talks over an agreement for the repatriation of Nigerians held in Italy, for their punishment in Nigeria to be shortened. Last week a similar agreement was reached between the British and Nigerian authorities.
