    THE Nigerian Immigration Service says it has registered a total of 185 foreigners residing illegally in Jigawa state.

    Spokesperson of the Jigawa state command, Malam Fa`izu Ibrahim disclosed this to newsmen in Dutse the state capital.

    He warned foreigners living in the state to get registered before the expiration of the deadline.

    Ibrahim said any foreigner who refuses to get registered will be liable to three years imprisonment or pay a fine of five hundred thousand Naira.
