PHOTOS: Stranded Nigerians who voluntarily returned from Libya due to hardship
262 Nigerians voluntarily returned home from Libya on Wednesday with the help of the International Organisation for Migration and the Nigerian Embassy in Libya.
The returnees, who had been stranded in Libya, were made up of 108 males, 135 females, eight children and 11 infants.
They arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos aboard a chartered Libyan Airlines aircraft with registration number 5A-LAR.
They were received by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service, the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and the Police.
IOM gave each returnee the sum of 18,000 Naira and NEMA supported them with the sum of 7,000 to ease their transportation to their respective destinations and settle down in the community.
