Less than four hours after 144 Nigerians were returned from Libya, another batch of 257 early this morning were repatriated from the North African country.

The latest returnees were brought to the country through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.

The returnees comprise 65 adult females, 179 adult males, seven children and six infants.

The spokesperson for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), South West Zone, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, said the returnees arrived aboard a Libyan Airlines aircraft at the Cargo Wing of the airport at about 1.30am.

He said they were assisted back to Nigeria by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and the European Union (EU).

He also confirmed that four of the returnees had medical cases and were promptly taken away on an ambulance for treatment.

He said the returnees were received by officials of NEMA, Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
