Video: 239 Nigerian Migrants Safely Returns From Libya Following the Current Slave Trade In The County


According to online report, 239 Nigerian Migrants including men, women and children safely returned to the country from Libya aboard a Libyan Airline flight last night Tuesday, 28th November 2017.

The Federal Government Of Nigeria in collaboration with IOM (International Organization of Migration) have been working together in facilitating the return of Nigerian Migrants in Libya for over a year now.

On their safe return to back to Nigeria, Officials from IOM and federal government agencies - NEMA and NCFRMI (National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons), who have been working together in facilitating the return of Nigerian Migrants in Libya for over a year now were reportedly on ground to receive the migrant who have traveled illegally through the desert trying to reach Italy via Libya before finding themselves in tight situations, thrown into jail for illegal entry or falling into the hands of wrong people and being sold into slavery/prostitution, at the airport.

The migrants were later profiled and registered with Food and Accommodation after which Financial assistance were given to them to support their reintegration back into the society.

It was gathered that this has been the general procedure since last year as over 3,000 Nigerian Migrants have been returned from Libya and many more would still be brought back into the country within the next few weeks.

Watch the video of the migrant who were all visibly happy to be back home that was captured and shared online by Nigerian singer, Nikki Laoye.
