The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has expressed worries over the delay noticed in the return of the fourth batch and the remaining 3,000 Nigerians stranded in Libya.
NEMA said that the delay was caused by a shooting at the departure airport in Tripoli by some militia group which claimed some lives. The agency stated this when 465 of the returnees in the fourth batch arrived Port Harcourt International Airport, Omuagwa, Rivers State.
The 465 persons landed at the airport on board Max Air plane exactly 12:29 local time and were moved to the reception centre created at the same facility for medical attention and profiling.
