Fourth Batch Of Anambra Returnees From Libya Arrive

The 4th batch of Anambra State returnees from Libya have arrived in the state.

The returnees were received by the Anambra State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) officials at the Port Harcourt Airport through their counterparts from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and other security agencies.

The team leader of SEMA, Mr Emmanuel Izuchukwu disclosed to newsmen in Awka on Friday.

He said that government had good plans for them, adding that the returnees would be taken to skills acquisition centre, at Abagana.

One of the returnees, Mr Victor Ndukwe from Awka South Local Government said that he was in prison for about four months, with little or no food, where he faced severe torture.

He described his stay in Libya as being in “second hell’’.

Another returnee, David Eze from Nnewi said he was a businessman dealing in electrical parts before he left for Libya.

He explained that he was misinformed about his prospects in Libya; as his intention was to crossover to Europe through Libya.

Eze in appreciation, thanked the Federal and state governments for saving their lives and prayed that others harbouring intention of travelling through Libya should be discouraged from embarking on such trip.
