** Diplomatic Tension ** NIGERIANS IN SAUDI ARABIA ARE CHANGING THEIR NAMES TO AVOID DEPORTATION;

Nigerian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Mr. Abubakar Bunu, has said many Nigerian emigrants are changing their names to outsmart authorities and avoid deportation.
Bunu, who disclosed this to journalists in Gusau on Saturday, said many of the emigrants had gone into hiding, thereby making it difficult for law enforcement agents to trace them.
He explained that in spite of joint efforts by the Saudi authorities and officials of the Nigerian Embassy there to locate them, only about 500 persons had been repatriated in the last six months.
TheNews Agency of Nigeriareports that Bunu said the embassy had discovered that some of the emigrants, who had lived there for upwards of 25 years, had crossed through different routes including Sudan and Yemen or as pilgrims on lesser hajj and refused to return.
Bunu stated that although the figure of Nigerians staying illegally in the kingdom was not known, the Saudi authorities said it was over one million.
He therefore advised Nigerians who want to stay in the Arabian country to regularise their documents with the authorities to avoid unwarranted embarrassment
