The National Emergency Management Agency said on
Thursday that it had received another 175 Nigerian returnees
from Libya through the Murtala Muhammed International
Airport, Lagos.
The returnees are 92 male adults, 53 female adults, six male
children, 12 female children, nine male infants, and three
female infants.
Acting Coordinator of NEMA’s Lagos Territorial Office,
Ibrahim Farinloye told newsmen in Lagos that they arrived at
the airport at about 9.48 p.m. on Wednesday.
One of the returnees, Azizat Omoniyi, 21, from Lagos State
who abandoned her education when she was 17 years old,
expressed regret at her misbehavior, especially for wasting
her father’s hard-earned money.
Azizat said her mother died while she was at a tender age
and was being catered for by maternal relations, but she felt
she was being maltreated and ran away to be with her father.
