NEMA further noted that they were brought mainly from three cities of Sabha, Bram Alshati and Oubari.
The returnees comprised 29 female adults, five female children, four female infants, 75 male adults, two male children and five male infants. While welcoming them back, Afolayan asked the returnees to make good use of the second chance afforded by the IOM and God Almighty after surviving the dangers of illegal migration.
She said: “I was deceived that I would get a better job at Germany as a stylist, there were 20 of us in the team and we were promised that we would fly to Germany but after two weeks, we found ourselves in Niger Republic. After three weeks we were in Libya, Madam told all of us that, we can’t cross over but we have to become prostitutes in order to refund her money which was 1.4 million naira.
“I resorted to fervent prayers and pleaded with madam that it is a taboo in our family to prostitute. I pleaded with her to give another option. I was asked to work at a restaurant and was able to refund her money.
“Immediately I finished paying her money, I started working on my own to get some money but my madam organised my kidnapped and I was bailed by her with about N650,000 and she doubled the amount and said that I must pay her N1.3 million. I paid her by doing all sorts of work. I left Nigeria in 2014. I returned with nothing to show for the wasted four years.
“I want to beg those people thinking about travelling illegally to desist. There is nothing better outside Nigeria.
”Is it the freedom to move around, is it the liberty to engage in work without fear of hoodlums breaking into your house and taking away your sweat because there is no banking system for us? We have to keep our cash with us and the boys invade us to take it away. Nigerians should stay and look for better opportunities here please.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that one hundred and seventy Nigerians deported from Libya arrived Lagos. The deportees arrived aboard a chartered BURAQ Airline.
The flight with registration number 5A-DMG, landed at about 8.25pm with the 171 deportees. The returnees comprised of 70 female adults including 9 pregnant women, 90 male adults, 3 children and 8 infants.
