The aircraft conveying the returnees landed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, around 3:30pm yesterday aboard the chartered aircraft and the returnees were received at the Hajj Terminal by the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA.
The group was made up of 101 females and 60 males, seven children, and two infants.
There were also three unaccompanied minors while three of the deportees needed medical care. Addressing newsmen at the Hajj Camp wing of the airport where the returnees were profiled, Mohammed Sidi, the Director General of NEMA, represented by Abdullahi Onimode, Deputy Director, Search and Rescue, said the deportees would be given some token to go back to their respective destinations.
He also advised those leaving the country in search of greener pastures to have a rethink and stay in the country to develop it.
The NEMA boss said, “We are giving them some stipends. We need to let them realize that the country they left some years ago is not the same country they are meeting today. We have moved ahead and everybody now has equal opportunity to be the best you can be.”
Some of the deportees who appeared trumatised said they will never leave Nigeria again. One of them who gave his name as Stanley Nduh told Vanguard that the Libya police hung him upside down after beating him mercilessly. He said he was not allowed to take any property he acquired from Libya.
