Another 249 Nigerians Return From Libya
Another fresh 249 Nigerian migrants on Thurday evening returned to the country with the aid of the International Organisation for Migration and EU.
They arrived aboard Afriqiyah Airbus A330-300 with Registration number 5A-ONR which landed at the Cargo Wing of MMIA, Ikeja Lagos.
The new arrival consisted of 52 adult female, four female children and 10 female infants, 173 adult male, two male children and 9 male infant making a total of 249 returnees.
The Zonal Coordinator of NEMA Southwest Zonal Office who represented the Director General of the Agency, Engr. Mustapha Maihajja recieved the returnees and implored them to be champions of positive change amongst the youths who are still nursing the idea of seeking greener pastures outside the country.
He advised them to individually and collectively collaborate in raising awareness against migration through illegal means.
“You should let them know that you’re always second citizens outside your country and your rights can be violated without opportunity for you to seek redress at all,” he said.
