A fresh batch of not less than 160 returnees from Libya consisting of 74 females and 86 males (both adults and children), arrived Nigeria a few days ago and were received by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
Mathew was working as a carpenter in Nigeria before he traveled to Libya. When asked about his ordeal over there he said:
“I don see death face to face but thank God I am alive”. “Please don’t follow this route, the land is not greener as you think.”
Another returnee identified as Mrs. Adebisi Komolafe who hails from Osun State said if she had an idea of how bad the experience would be, she wouldn’t have taken the chance.
She, however, called on Nigerians to keep praying for the leaders, saying that if God guides the leaders right, things may not be so bad in the country.
According to her, since she traveled in 2016, she worked as a maid but despite making some money, she could not send anything back home to her family in Nigeria.
