172 Nigerians deported from Libya.


About 172 Nigerians were yesterday deported from Libya for the breach of the country’s immigra­tion laws.Those deported included 166 males and six fe­males. 

They arrived Nigeria through the Hajj wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport around 7:00am via a chartered aircraft from Libya. Spokesman for the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) Mr. Ekpedeme King told Aviation corre­spondents that the deportees were returned to the country for staying beyond the dates, which were stipulated in their visas in Libya and for other im­migration offences in the North African country, which he didn’t state.

“What I can tell you is that some Nigerians were deported today (yesterday) for immigration of­fences. Most of those brought overstayed in Libya,” King said.

One of the deportees, who simply identified him­self as Chris said he travelled out of Nigeria about two years ago in a quest to better his life.
