According to a report by SaharaReporters, Cambodian soldiers in Sa Kaeo have arrested two Nigerian traders for allegedly illegally crossing the border in Ta Phraya district on Wednesday.
They were caught when they walked across a border path into Thailand at Ban Noen Somboon.
Both said they were 35 years old, Nigeria Abroad reports.
They also said they had a store and had been selling clothes in Phnom Penh for two years.
One of them disclosed that he wanted to renew his visa while the other wanted to get a new passport because he said he had lost it.
They said there was no Nigerian Embassy in Cambodia, so they wanted to get to the embassy in Bangkok on Sukhumvit 61.
The two were screened for Covid-19, especially the new Omicron variant, and their temperature was normal.
They were sent to Ta Phraya police station for legal action. The Nigerian Embassy is being informed, a Cambodian outlet says.
