holding answer 9 December 2013

We do not provide the costs of particular flights or of staff for reasons of commercial confidentiality.

The Nigerian high commission in London and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Abuja agreed to the removal of Mr Muazu, but the initial flight was forced to land in Malta, and then return to the UK, for operational reasons not connected to Mr Muazu's health or conduct.

Mr Muazu has now been successfully returned to Nigeria.
