Another 446 Stranded Nigerians Return From Libya
The fourth batch of stranded Nigerians in Libya has arrived the Port Harcourt International Airport Omagwa on Friday.
The chartered aircraft which brought the returnees touched down at the Port Harcourt International Airport Omagwa at exactly 12: 20 am today with a total number of 446 Nigerians.
The South-South Regional Director of the National Emergency Management Agency NEMA Ejike Martins told our correspondent in Port Harcourt that the operation to bring back stranded Nigerians was halted two weeks ago following the crisis that occurred in Tripoli capital of Libya last month.
The South-South Regional Director of NEMA expressed optimism that the over three thousand stranded Nigerians waiting to be airlifted from Libya will all return to the country soon.
He said the return of the 446 Nigerians today brings to two thousand, the number of stranded Nigerians who have so far returned from Libya through the Port Harcourt International Airport this year.
