Reports say a Niger national who was expelled from Israel has been stuck at the international airport in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, since November 2018 after his home country refused to take him back. On arrival in Niamey, Niger’s capital, he was refused entry by Niger’s authorities who alleged his travel document was false. But Israel refused to accept him and detained him again for several weeks. “They tied my hands and legs and forced me into a plane back to Niger which refused to accept me again,” he said. Then the travel document issued by Israel expired when he was stuck in transit at Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport after Niger refused to accept him for a second time.
