No place like home – Nigerians deported from Libya
No fewer than 140 Nigerians, who were deported from Libya, arrived in the country on Tuesday through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
GbeduHub learnt that the deportees, who arrived on board a Libyan Airline, were received by the Director-General of the National Emergency Management Agency, Sani Sidi, who was represented by the South-West Coordinator of the agency, Dr. Onimode Bamdele.
Our correspondent gathered that while many of the deportees left for their various destinations, others left in two chattered BRT buses for the Synagogue Church of All Nations.
Three of the deportees, who had medical issues, were said to have been taken to a hospital, where they were admitted for treatment.
Our correspondent gathered that most of the deportees had been in detention in various Libyan prisons before they were released after the intervention of the International Organisation for Migration and the Nigerian embassy in Libya.
The spokesperson for NEMA, South-West zone, Ibrahim Farinloye, confirmed the development.
