Another Set of 171 Nigerians Arrive in Lagos from Libya

The massive deportation of Nigerians living in Libya have continued on Tuesday, 7th March, as over a hundred arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.

According to TheCable News, a total of 171 Nigerians, comprising 95 females and 76 males, have returned to the country from Libya on Tuesday.

It was learnt that the returnees are currently at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, where they are being attended to by officials of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and some other agencies.

The plane, which conveyed them from the North African country, landed around 4:15pm.

Recall that last week, 241 Nigerians were forced to return home as a result of the harrowing experience in Libya.

Gift Peters, one of the returnees, had told reporters that she was deceived of being taken to Germany.

“When I got to Libya, it was not in my mind to continue with the journey. So I asked the person that took me to return me to Nigeria but he started maltreating me and sold me to someone who has a connection house in Libya where we were maltreated daily.

“If we don’t want to work, they will start maltreating us. They will do something to you that you will wish to die. Those who they sold us to, sometimes, use iron and start burning us. At times, they will instruct our fellow ladies to urinate for us to drink,” she had said.
