Nigeria returnees from Libya hits 1,213 in Q1 2018 – THE Federal Government repatriated 1,213 Nigerians from Libya.

Charge d’Affaires of Nigeria in Libya Mr. Illiya Fachano made this known in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday.

He said the government, with the help of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), was able to repatriate Nigerians from Libya to Nigeria safely.

“The IOM has been very supportive and helpful in our aim at ensuring that these Nigerians, who were stranded in Libyan camps, are able to return home safely.

“I think that Nigerians are becoming more aware of illegal migrations and we hope to see a reduction in the number of people caught in such predicaments. However, we will continue to protect and salvage our people,’’ he said.

He added that the IOM was also supporting in the rehabilitation of the Libyan returnees, by providing funds and vocational training.

An estimated 3,500 Nigerians were successfully repatriated from Libya in 2017.
