The Nigerian Government in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration, IOM, has evacuated another batch of 112 stranded Nigerians from Libya.
Ambassador Kabiru Musa, Charge D’Affaires of the Nigerian Mission to Libya made this known in a statement in Abuja.
He said the continuous voluntary evacuation exercise was part of the Federal Government’s efforts to ensure that none of its citizens was left stranded abroad.
According to him, this is the sixth evacuation exercise the Federal Government is conducting this year, with almost 5,000 Nigerians successfully evacuated from Libya.
As a transit country to Europe, thousands of Nigerians are reported to be stranded in Libya from human trafficking, and suffer terrible ordeals in the hands of their traffickers in the North African country.
