As part of efforts to check criminal elements in the country and the state, the Rivers state comptroller of immigration Rasheed Adegoke has flagged off the e-registration exercise to take records of all migrants in the state, following the kick-off process of the national exercise by the President at the service headquarters in Abuja.
The exercise which includes documentation, bio-metrics and picture capture of immigrants, is expected to furnish the immigration with data of all immigrants.
