138 Nigerians deported from Libya

Not less than 138 Nigerians on Tuesday voluntarily returned to the country from Libya with the help of the International Organisation for Migration.

The returnees, who were received by the officials of the National Emergency Management Agency with the help of other agencies, were said to have been stranded in Libya following failed attempts to cross over to Europe.

They arrived at the Cargo Wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at about 8.05 pm.

The Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, South-West, Mr. Suleiman Yakubu, said four out of the returnees were critically ill and needed urgent medical attention.

“The 138 returnees were brought back to Nigeria on the expression of interest to return to the country through the assistance of IOM,” he said.
