The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA has received another batch of 160 stranded Nigerians from Libya.
Coordinator, Lagos Territorial Office of NEMA Idris Muhammed, confirmed the development to newsmen today in Lagos.
Muhammed said the Nigerians arrived at the Cargo Wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Thursday aboard a chartered aircraft and were received by NEMA and other government agencies.
According to him, they were brought back by the International Organisation for Migration and European Union under the Assisted Voluntary Returnees Programme.
Muhammed advised young Nigerians to desist from embarking on irregular migration which removes the fundamental rights that such migrants could have enjoyed.
He noted that it was unfortunate that they had to expose themselves to danger in the quest for greener pastures outside the shores of the country.
