No fewer than 157 Nigerians were flown back home from Libya on Wednesday night.
An official of the National Emergency Management Agency, Me. Ibrahim Farinloye, saud in a WhatsApp message that the returnees landed Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos around 9.45pm.
They flew in aboard a BURAQ Airlines Boeing 737-800 with Registration number 5A-DMG.
NEMA received the new set of 157 rturnees comprising 54 adult females, 90 adult males, three children and 10 infants.
Among the returnees were eight pregnant women and one medical case.
NEMA Director General who was represented by the Southwest Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu, assured the Rmreturnees that the Federal Government is doing everything possible to bring back all Nigerians that are willing to return and special incentives are being put in place for all of them.
But he enjoined them to see their sojourn as a way of challenge to make Nigeria greater by looking at the present challenges in positive ways.
“You have gone out and seen things yourself that Nigeria is a great country, Your contributions can make it a greater country you crave for and I want you all to turn things around for the development of this nation.
“Nigeria is blessed with all resources that everyone can tap from without any fear of being molested or exposed to inhuman treatment,” he said.
