A Libyan Airline aircraft with registration number 5A-LAT on Monday arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport , Lagos, with 154 Nigerians who had been stranded in Libya.

The spokesperson of the Lagos Airport Police Command, Joseph Alabi, confirmed the return of the Nigerians to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

Mr. Alabi said the returnees, comprising 58 males and 96 females , returned voluntarily to the country at about 4.00 p.m.

“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.

Their details were taken by officers of the Nigerian Immigration Service , the National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons and Other Related Matters and the Police.

They were also received by officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria.

No fewer than 550 Nigerians have returned in batches from Libya since March when the IOM started the voluntary return programme.
