Nigeria Receives Another Batch of Voluntary Libya Returnees

About 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.

Yakubu, who represented the Director General of NEMA, Mr. Mustapha Maihaja, said the 138 people were made up of 65 female adults, two teenage girls and two female infants; 64 male adults, two teenage boys and three male infants.

“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. He also urged the returnees to look forward to a brighter future ahead as the government had put various initiatives in place, to tackle challenges facing the country, with the aim of restoring hope to all Nigerians.

Nigeria is already on the right track to its lost glory with efforts to create more job opportunities in various fields of endeavours,” he said.


*It must be really bad out there in Libya for them to be running back home...God help them but how will they settle back in?Frying pan to fire directly!


  1. Libya dat country name sound like suffering ooo, Una well-come ooo.

  2. From frying pan to fire indeed

  3. At least they are alive with tales OG abroad. Join Yaba or wharf boys sell bend down

  4. Welcome back home my people

  5. It costs them up to 7000USD to make the journey abroad. They all believe that when they get to Europe that money is flowing on trees but that is what they had been told by their smugglers.

    Once they arrive in abroad or Libya after passing the dessert, they get the shock of their lives. Some die in the ocean as they pass into Europe only to be arrested by the navy and put into detention.

    I asked one, so why didn't you just use the 7000USD to start a business or something, he said life is very hard in my country. My brother life is hard everywhere and you will discover the meaning of HARD today. Welcome.

  6. Y so many naija peep dey libya lik dis?dey av deported 900thousands of nigerians frm dat stupid country n dey av nt even finished sef
