I Left Nigeria Complete But Came Back With One Leg – Libya Returneee
In their hundreds, they continue to arrive and by now it is no more news when Nigerians return from Libya.
Another batch of 245 more Nigerians voluntarily returned from the volatile North African country on Tuesday.
One of the returnees, Endurance Omeyo from Uromi in Edo State, said he went to Libya in 2016, and unfortunately came back with one of his legs amputated.
He said: “I come from a very poor home. I lost my father about 12 years ago and only my mother was left to be facing the stress.
“That is why I went to Libya to cross the sea and go to Italy, but unfortunately, I couldn’t make it as we were arrested while on the sea.
“We were 160 people on that boat but 110 died and only 50 of us survived. They now took us back to prison in Libya.”
According to him, he spent over a month in captivity before a friend from Italy sent him N250, 000 which he used to buy his freedom from his captors.
The 28-year-old said a few weeks after, he was shot while in company of two friends which led to the amputation of his leg.
“I spent months in the hospital, until my mother went to borrow N400, 000 which was used to perform three surgeries on me and that is why I am alive today,” he said.FOR MORE FRESH STORIES, DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
