166 more Nigerians return from Libya

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has received another batch of 166 voluntary returnees from Libya. The 56 female adults, four female infants and three female children; and 101 male adults and two male children’s return was facilitated by the International Organisation for Migration on Wednesday.
The South-West Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, Alhaji Yakubu Suleiman, received the returnees who arrived the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 8.10pm, aboard a  NouvelAir aircraft.
Suleiman, who described the returnees’ journey to Libya as unfortunate, said they should consider it a phase of life that should not be allowed to dampen their bright future.
He advised them to learn from the experience and make their lives better, adding that they should strive to become anti-trafficking and illegal migration ambassadors in the country.
“You have seen it all and you are in the best position to sensitise and create awareness against the evils of human trafficking as you have seen the dangers in chasing greener pastures in a foreign land,” he added
