Another 365 Nigerians Return From Libya In Two Days

One hundred and sixteen Nigerians have returned from Libya in the early hours of Friday, in addition to the 249 that returned on Thursday night, bringing the total of repatriated Nigerians to 365 within two days.

The 116 arrived aboard Buraq Airlines and were handed over to the Federal Government through the southwest Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, Suleiman Yakubu who represented the Director General of the Agency, Suleiman Yakubu.

Among them were 46 female adults, three female children, four female infants, 60 male adults, one male child and two male infants, making a total of 116 returnees.

Also among the 249 who had returned earlier were 52 female adults, four female children, 10 female infants, 173 male adults, two male children and 9 male infants.

They were voluntarily assisted back home after their failed attempts to cross over to Europe through Libya by the IOM through European Union funding.

The first set of returnees have been accommodated in hotels and would be joined with the new returnees before they proceed to their final destinations.

Some state officials have been on ground to facilitate the transportation of their indigenes back to their respective states.
