MIGRANTS: 250 Nigerians To Return From Libya


The Federal Government says that 250 Nigerians will be repatriated from Libya on Tuesday, noting that 3,000 citizens had been brought back so far.

The Charge d’Affairs, Nigerian mission in Libya, Iliya Fachano said this while addressing members of a coalition which staged a protest at the ministry on Monday in Abuja, demanding an end to slavery in the Arab nation.

Fachano explained that embassy officials visited the detention camps weekly where illegal migrants mostly from African countries were held.

He added that those identified as Nigerians were given emergency travel certificates to enable them to return to Nigeria on chartered aircraft financed by the International Organisation for Migration.
