Another set of 175 Nigerians from Libya arrive at NEMA

The Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos on Wednesday welcomed another group of 175 stranded Nigerians from Libya to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

The acting coordinator of the agency’s Lagos territorial office, Ibrahim Farinloye, on behalf of NEMA Director-General Mustapha Ahmed, verified the development in Lagos.

According to Mr. Farinloye, a Boeing 737-800 operated by Al Buraq Air with the registration number 5A-DMG arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport’s Cargo Wing to pick up the stranded Nigerians at approximately 23:58 p.m.


He said that the International Organization for Migration (IOM) ran a voluntary repatriation campaign to bring the returns home.

According to him, the program was created for struggling Nigerians who left their nation in search of better opportunities in Europe but were unable to pay to come back after their travels proved fruitless.

According to Mr. Farinloye, the returns include 77 male adults, 64 female adults, 11 male and 12 female children, five female infants, and six male infants.

He claimed that two women and two men who were brought into the nation had medical problems.

No country was better than Nigeria, it was said to the returnees, who were advised to hunt for possibilities domestically rather than expose themselves to “undeserved perils in foreign lands.”

He said that NEMA, as well as sister organizations including the Immigration Service, Refugee Commission, Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), and the Nigerian Police, received the returnees.
