Nigeria: Libya returnees arrested on way to Libya with 4 victims

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

ABUJA – The Nigeria Immigration Service in Katsina has arrested two suspected human traffickers and rescued four victims at a border crossing in Katsina.

The suspected traffickers are returnees in the ongoing Federal Government evacuation of Nigerians living in Libya.

According to the immigration boss, the two suspected human smugglers formally resided in Libya irregularly, saying that they took advantage of the Federal Government’s free transportation programme in 2018 where many Nigerians stranded in Libya were brought back home.

“No sooner did they return to Nigeria than they constituted themselves into very powerful recruitment agents deceiving unsuspecting young Nigerians with promises of good jobs in Libya or from there to Europe for future education and greener pasture,” he said.
