To Be Sincere, Nigeria Is Far Better Than Libya, Returnee Says
One of the migrants that were airlifted from Libya and brought back to the country in the early morning of Friday , Ms Aminat Sunday , has said that if truth must be told, Nigeria is better than Libya.
She narrated that she worked as a maid during her stay in Libya, adding that she was lured to the country due to family burdens and persuasion from her trafficker .
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the 29- year – old lady who hails from Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State , said she regretted embarking on the journey, as she had a very difficult experience in Libya.
According to her , she paid her trafficker with her full year wages after arriving in Libya.
“I was working as a housemaid cleaning tiles, but the work made me to come back home because it is very stressful, tiring and have serious health problems on my body .
“To be sincere , Nigeria is far better than Libya. I have learned my lessons in wrong way but thank God I am still alive, ” Sunday said.
She therefore advised other youths to learn from her experience and shun the urge of irregular migration in search of greener pastures .
The immigrants were brought back to Nigeria in a Buraq Airlines Boeing 737- 8000 aircraft with registration number 5A – DMG by the International Organisation for Migration under its Assisted Voluntary Return Programme.
