16,387 Nigerians repatriated in 2017 – CG

Posted 1 wk, 3 days ago
The Comptroller- General of Immigration, Muhammad Babandede, on Monday said that 16,387 Nigerians were repatriated back home from various countries in 2017.

He disclosed that 5,908 were from Libya, 3,836 from Saudi Arabia and 6,643 from other countries, including South Africa, Italy and Austria.

Babandele stated this while briefing newsmen in Abuja on the findings by the Federal Government delegation to Libya led by Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama on January 5, 2018.

Other members of the team were, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Director-General, National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons,  Julie Okah-Donli and Federal Commissioner, National Commission for Refugees, Sadiya Faruq.

The CG, who was also on the delegation said, “I want to state that in 2017 alone, we received into the country deportees specifically from Libya, 5,908.

“So if you add to the number we received on January 7, which was 485 from Libya, it  will give you 6,393 deportees we received from Libya.

“The ratio of those deported on January 7 is very interesting, 398 males, 84 females, 3 children.”

He said though there were many Nigerians in slave camps in Libya,  a good number of Nigerians were also living in the Arab country legally.
