Some Libya returnees going back, say they prefer to die there as Nigerian officials embezzle money meant for them


Some Libya returnees from Edo state have revealed that some of the returnees have gone back to the North African country preferring to die there than being frustrated by Nigerian authorities.

The returnees advised the International Organization of Migration, IOM, the European Union and other humanitarian agencies not to partner with the Nigerian Government in sending aide to them.

They also hinted that more Nigerians would continue to flee to Libya in spite of the sufferings and torture associated with such trips.

They said projects routed through the Nigerian Government hardly ever get to the intended beneficiaries.

The returnees spoke in Benin-City, Edo state at a ceremony organized by IOM to launch and hand over a Migrant Resource Centre MRC to the Federal Government.

Iluobe Ehis, who returned last year, said, “What I have to tell the EU-IOM is that they should please, not partner with the government or any other agency in Nigeria.

“If there is any project you have for the returnees, please do it fast. We heard that some money was set aside to empower us but till now we have not seen anything since we finished our training last year.”

Another returnee who simply identified himself as Collins said, “Talking about reintegration, up till today nothing has been done. They trained us last year but the grants they promised us have not been given.

“My candid advice to IOM and EU is that if you want to spend money on returnees, do not partner with the Nigerian government. Some of us that returned have gone back again.”

The programme had the presence of the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr. Chris Ngige; the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha (represented by Mrs. Roseline Obiechine); and the Federal Commissioner, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons, Hajia Sadia Umar Farouk.
