In March 2019 when the Immigration Service held its last major recruitment, more than 125,000 applied in Abuja and Lagos alone to fill the 4,500 vacancies available nationwide.
Fifty-six thousand applied in Lagos, while 69,000 applied in Abuja. Many more applied from across the country for the recruitment which ended on a sour note. At least 16 of the applicants died, while many others fainted as a result of stampede at the recruitment test centres in 2019. (NAN)
