580 Nigerians are expected from the Libya this week.
Why it matters: The number of Nigerians that have returned from the North African country this year has run into hundreds and more hundreds.
Let’s go back a little:
- 138 Nigerians, 4 critically ill returned from Libya – October 3.
- Senator Shehu Sani says the suffering of the thousands of Nigerians in Libya has made their recruitment as terrorists quite easy.
- NEMA received 121 Nigerian returnees from Libya – in September… and many others.
- DSP Joseph Alabi, the spokesperson for the Lagos Airport Police Command, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos.
- Alabi said that 420 Nigerians would arrive in the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos on Tuesday via two chartered flights while another 160 would come back on Thursday.
