The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) says it has received a batch of 160 assisted voluntary returnees from Libya who were stranded in failed attempts to reach different European countries.
The Planning Officer of NEMA, Mr Segun Afolayan, told Newsmen in Lagos on Friday that the returnees arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, last night. He said that they were brought back through the assistance of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).
After profiling, the returnees comprised of seven female adults and 153 males. Afolayan urged the federal and state governments and development partners should create a more conducive atmosphere where all Nigerians can prosper. 155 Nigerians had voluntarily returned from Libya on July 5, with the assistance of the IOM.
