130 Nigerians, 11 pregnant women return from Libya

On Tuesday, 130 Nigerians, 11 pregnant women voluntarily returned from Libya to Nigeria with the assistance of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and the European Union (EU).

According to NAN reports, Mr Segun Afolayan, chief planning officer, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said the Nigerians arrived at the Cargo Wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos, at about 10.45 p.m. on Tuesday aboard a chartered Al-Buraq aircraft with registration number UZ189.

He said that “After profiling, we have 71 female adults, three female children and three female infants.

“Also, there were 53 male adults, six male children and five male infants; among them were two medical cases and 11 pregnant women.”

Mr Afolayan advised the returnees to become more focused in life and not allow the unfortunate experience to negatively impact on their lives.

“Truly, you had bad experiences differently, collectively and individually but these should be the motivation for you to make positive decision to see the brighter future ahead of you.

“This is because, no one can tell the story more than you and making better use of your lives are essential.


“The federal government is urging you to be ambassadors of positive change by taking the anti-irregular migration campaign to those still aspiring to take the dangerous journey.

“You can talk to them in the language they will understand most,’’ he added.
