In his views, their spokesperson Mr Joseph Paul Eke, from ISiekenesi Ideato South Local Government Area of Imo State, described their experience as horrible, barbaric and unbearable, hinting that people were sold as slaves, slaughtered like animals and the ladies were sexually abused.

His words live in Libya is tormenting, a lot of evils are happening there and those who are doing the transaction are Nigerians in collaboration with Libyans and their agents in Italy. Many of our Nigerians are still in Libya desirous to return home, but there is no safe route because the militants causing this havoc have blocked all the escape routes. If you are lucky you work and they pay you, there is no functional bank to transfer your money to your country, if you keep it in your house the Libyans will come at any time to rub you. Is a place where there is no government, criminality and lawlessness are the order of the day’

He seized the opportunity to admonish Nigerians desirous to travel Italy through Libya to have a rethink because is a suicidal mission, as things have fallen apart in Libya due to absence of Government.

Highlights of the event were presentation of cash to the Libya returnees for their temporary sustenance and official hand over of the Libya returnees to their various Local Government Transitional Committee Chairmen, who were mandated to drive them to their various communities so that they can reunite with their family members.
