Another 135 Stranded Nigerians Arrive From Libya
The fifth batch of stranded Nigerians in Libya has arrived the Port Harcourt International Airport Omagwa, River State.
The fifth batch which consists of 136 Nigerians landed the Port Harcourt International Airport at exactly ten minutes past one early this morning.
The South-South Regional Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency NEMA and Head of Libya Operation in Port Harcourt Ejike Martins told our correspondent that over two thousand stranded Nigerians in Libya are still waiting to be evacuated to the country.
He reiterated his call on state governments to pick up their indigenes who are among the returnees from the reception camp to make space for another batch.
Our correspondent reports that over 30 returnees who arrived with the 4th batch two weeks ago are still at the Libya reception camp in Port Harcourt.
More than 2, 000 Nigerians had arrived from North Africa since the news of kidnapping and killings broke a few months ago.
Many Africans, including Nigerians, were being sold as slaves in Libya.
