A Libyan Airline aircraft arrived on Monday at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos with 154 Nigerians who had been stranded in Libya.

The spokesperson of the Lagos Airport Police Command, DSP Joseph Alabi, confirmed the return of the Nigerian in Lagos.

Alabi said the returnees, comprising 58 males and 96 females , returned voluntarily to the country at about 4.00pm. “One of them was seriously sick on arrival. His name is Tony Isaac.

The officials of the National Emergency Management Agency quickly rushed him to their hospital for treatment. “Their return was voluntary and I don’t think any of them has committed any crime over there to warrant prosecution,” he said.

The returnees were brought back by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in collaboration with the Nigerian Embassy in Libya.
