Give Us Jobs, Libya Returnees Tell Nigerian Government
Libya Returnees have called on the Federal Government to provide jobs and infrastructure to make migration of Nigerians to foreign lands unattractive.
They said this, days after over four hundred and ninety-one Nigerians stranded in Libya were repatriated by the Federal Government. Nigerians are calling on the National Assembly to initiate laws aimed at addressing excessive migration.
But to achieve a wholesome solution to the problem, they believe the federal government must address economic and social factors that push Nigerians to migrate in search of greener pastures.
In Edo state, there are fears of possible infiltration of terrorists among the returnees.
However, the Nigerian Army says about 107 Boko Haram terrorists have been neutralized.
The army in a statement signed by the Director of Public Relations, Brigadier-General Sani Usman says its operation Deep Punch-II in the Lake Chad basin area have cleared the villages of Metele, Tumbun-Gini and Tumbun-Ndjamena.
Boko Haram logistics base at Tumbun-Ndjamena which held stocks of fish, foodstuffs, fuel and motorcycles were destroyed.
Four soldiers, however, lost their lives with nine others wounded during the operation.
