Also, there were 53 male adults, 6 male children and 5 male infants.

Receiving the Nigerians who were mostly from city Centre of Tripoli, the capital of Libya, Mr Seguin Afolayan, Chief Planning Officer, on behalf of the Director General of NEMA Engr Mustapha Maihajja and other federal agencies welcomed the voluntary returnees back in the country.

Afolayan urged the returnees not to allow their unfortunate experiences to negatively impact on their lives.

“Truly, you had bad experiences differently, collectively and individually but these should be the motivation for you to make positive decision to see the brighter future ahead of you.

“This is because, no one can tell the story more than you and making the better use of your lives are essential,” he admonished.
