About 241 Nigerians on Tuesday returned from Libya after being deported.
They arrived at the cargo terminal of Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, and were received by the National Emergency Management Agency on behalf of the Federal Government.
The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) facilitated their repatriation in collaboration with the Nigerian Embassy in Libya.
A breakdown of the figure indicated that 67 females were deported in which six of them were under the age of 18 and four others were below four years.
174 males, with three below 18 years and one under the age of four, were also repatriated.
A male and two female returnees are receiving medical treatments at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital in Nigeria’s commercial capital.
The returnees were received by officials of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) at the MMI Airport.
NEMA has facilitated their transportation to their respective states of origin while some were offered transport fares to their places of destinations.
