More than 146 Nigerians arrive in Lagos from Libya

More than 146 Nigerians arrive in Lagos from Libya

Earlier this month, USA television network CNN reported that many African migrants in Libya had been captured by local criminal gangs and sold into slavery in lawless regions near Tripoli.

Another Nigerian recently repatriated told the AP about his ordeal. More than 10 Nigerians, including girls, were taken away and sold as slaves.

"It's heartbreaking, especially when I see a 13-year-old come with a baby", said Abike Dabiri-Erewa, senior special assistant to Nigeria's president on diaspora and foreign affairs. Calling the situation "dramatic", Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said the funds would help stabilize Libya's government. Rights groups also report that Libya's security forces have raped people who have been placed in their custody following unsuccessful attempts to seek more sustainable living conditions in European Union nations.

AU deputy chairperson Kwesi Quartey confirmed the repatriation efforts on his Twitter account on Tuesday.

The ministry stated that those registered were issued Emergency Travel Certificates.

There has been no confirmation on which countries' migrants will be sent home.

Ronda Rousey nearing pro wrestling deal with WWE
Following the two losses to Nunes, UFC president Dana White has been vocal about his opposition to Rousey's return. Ronda Rousey first came into the spotlight when she won the Bronze Medal in Judo at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

At the end of November, approximately 200 Gambians were repatriated while between 4 000 and 5 000 are still in Libyan camps, Jobe said as he slammed "African brothers" who act as middlemen for the smugglers.

The Ivory Coast and Cameroon are several other African countries that are now also involved in the repatriation efforts.

Europe has struggled to stem the flow of tens of thousands of Africans making the risky crossing of the Mediterranean. But many Africans still make the journey, risking death and abuse, saying high unemployment and climate change leave them little choice.

Libya is a popular route for illegal migrants seeking to go to Europe through the Mediterranean.

The number of stranded Nigerians that are voluntarily returning from Libya has risen to 401 after the arrival of 257 persons.
