About 140 Nigerians, who were deported from Libya, arrived in the country on Tuesday through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The deportees, who arrived on board a Libyan Airline, were received by the Director-General of the National Emergency Management Agency, Sani Sidi, who was represented by the South-West Coordinator of the agency, Dr. Onimode Bamdele.

While some of the deportees left for their various destinations, others left in 2 chattered BRT buses for the Synagogue Church, to seek help from Prophet TB Joshua.

Three of the deportees, who had medical issues, were said to have been taken to a hospital, where they were admitted for treatment.

Most of the deportees, Punch reports, had been in detention in Libyan prisons before their released after the intervention of the International Organisation for Migration and the Nigerian embassy.

Farinloye said the deportees regretted their decision to sneak out of Nigeria, adding that they had sad tales to tell from their experiences

He said, “They said what they passed through was what they would never wish for their enemies. The DG told them that even Libya that they went to believe there is no place like Nigeria because it has the most liberal policies for foreigners. He told them to stay back in Nigeria and help in developing the country and we will soon overcome our challenges.”
