More Libya returnees arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 9.47pm on Thursday.

As usual, they were received by the Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Alhaji Mustapha Maihajja.

Maihajja was represented by the South West Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu.

He implored the returnees to be champions of positive change by supporting the campaign against irregular migration.

He said they should be able to enlighten other Nigerian youths on the dangers of seeking greener pastures outside the country through illegal means based on their experiences in Libya.

“You should let them know that you are always second citizens outside your country and your rights can be violated without opportunity for you to seek redress at all,” Maihajja said.

No fewer than 3,000 Nigerians have voluntarily returned from Libya through the IOM supported programme in the last few months.

Many return with gory tales of their experiences in the country.
