241 Nigerians Repatriated From Libya

The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) on Tuesday facilitated the repatriation of 241 Nigerian returnees from Libya.

A breakdown of the figure indicated that 67 females were deported in which six of them were under the age of 18 and four others were below four years.

The analysis further revealed that 174 males, with three below 18 years and one under the age of four, were also repatriated.
A male and two female returnees are receiving medical treatments at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital in Nigeria’s commercial capital.

The returnees were received by officials of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) at the MMI Airport.

NEMA has facilitated their transportation to their respective states of origin while some were offered transport fares to their places of destinations.

The returnees are some of the stranded Nigerians trying to look for greener pastures in foreign lands through Libya.
