IOM Aids 157 Nigerians To Return Home

The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) has again aided the return of 157 Nigerians from Libya by chartered flight.

The returning migrants which comprised 70 female adults including nine pregnant women; 90 male adults, three children and eight infants, arrived at the cargo wing of the Muritala Muhammed International Airport, on Monday evening.

They were received by Government and IOM officials at the Hajj Cargo Terminal in Lagos.

About 8,500 have been aided back to Nigeria by the IOM.

Naija News recalls that the National Emergency Management Agency NEMA received a new batch of 186 Nigerians from Libya some weeks ago through the assistance of the IOM.

The agency said eight of them had minor health issues, adding that they returned voluntarily from the Zintan District of Libya.
