A 21-year-old lady, Azizat Omoniyi, who was among the 175 Nigerians who returned from Libya, has narrated how she ended up being a sεx worker after she deceiving her father to raise N800,00 for the Libyan trip.
KanyiDaily recalls that the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) had received 175 Nigerian returnees from Libya through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
NEMA South-West Coordinator, Ibrahim Farinloye said that returnees including 92 male adults, 53 female adults, six male children, 12 female children, nine male infants, and three female infants arrived at the airport at about 9.48 p.m. on Wednesday.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday, one of the returnees, Azizat Omoniyi, from Lagos State who abandoned her education when she was 17 years old, expressed regret at her misbehavior, especially for wasting her father’s hard-earned money.
The 21-year-old lady said, “I will never advise anyone to think of travelling out of this country aimlessly. We don’t appreciate what we have until it is lost. Anyone thinking of travelling without set and achievable objectives should forget it.”
Azizat said her mother died while she was at a tender age and was being catered for by maternal relations, but she felt she was being maltreated and ran away to be with her father.
She said, “From my father’s custody, a friend convinced me to meet her in Ibadan where I was introduced to the idea of travelling to Libya where I was told that I could work and receive a monthly salary of ₦120,000.
“I deceived my father that I wanted to establish a business and he gave me ₦800,000, but I used it for the Libyan trip through the desert.
“I became a slave and prostitute in Libya; I am not lying, I raised equivalent of ₦2 million as a prostitute to free myself from my trafficker.
“I want to go back to school. I stopped schooling at SS2 and have learnt my lessons. The lessons are very, very bitter, I wasted my life.
“I do not know my father’s location. I lost everything that I thought I could bring back home when the police raided our house and threw all of us into prison.
“We were dispossessed of our savings and property. I lost the phone in which l had my father’s contact. I have to wait till my transport allowance is paid before I can buy phone and try to gamble with numbers to know if I can get my father’s contact,’’ a remorseful Azizat said.
This comes a few months after a video emerged showing many Nigerians living in Libya being arrested by government officials who raided their various houses and dumped them in prisons.
