Immigration and tourist police went to investigate after reports that a foreigner had been living in a house on the holiday island of Koh Phangan for a long time, reported Naew Na.
 
They went to house number 281 in Moo 2. 
 
They found 35 year old Nigerian national Justine O.O. had entered the kingdom on a tourist visa last August.
 
His passport showed he was due to leave in October but never did and had now racked up an overstay of 210 days.
 
He was handed over to the Koh Phangan police for prosecution.
 
Surat Thai immigration chief Pol Col Suparick Phankoson told the media this was all part of IB chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang's master plan to rid Thailand of criminal elements and lawbreaking foreigners.

We keep reading these stories. It's obvious that whatever system they have at the immigration department isn't working ...

Are the BMW smart cars not able to go on a ferry and cruise the islands....

Maybe it's time for a sweep of visa of all Nigerian nationals in the country ? Seems with several picked up daily on overstay, romance fraud or drugs dealings they are more trouble than they are worth. Maybe they should raise the bar for entry by Nigerians having to show vast more to get a visa

 

 

I just thought they were only stuck at "the Terminal"

There is no immigration on Koh Phangan. 

When they come from Samui it will be known while they are on the ferry.

And I thought that it was us Brits that were the scourge of Thailand. Looks like we've got competition.

 

Bring it on.

He should have said he was a Nigerian Prince and he thought he had Diplomatic Immunity. Plus, he has $25 Million in a Nigerian Bank and was waiting all that time for it to transfer to Thailand.

idiot...blacklist him.

I think he was born on that list. The immigration “master plan” stood out to me. I’ve live in the same place a lot longer and nobody’s been by. Guess it’s just a matter of time.

I am a little concerned by your apparently racist remark, pinklist him I say, or better yet, multicolour rainbow list him.
