Lybia returnees shares pathetic experiences

Edo state returnees rescued from slave merchants in Lybia have expressed gratitude to God for their safe return while describing their ordeal as a desecration of the sanctity of humanity.


 Edo state government has in a couple of weeks, received the returnees in batches in the last following reports of sales of black Africans into modern slavery.

Some of them who spoke in Benin-City, talked about their deals and need for the federal government to take action.

Meanwhile, the state commissioner for justice, Yinka Omorogbe, assured that no fewer than two hundred and seventy-five returnees of a better life here in Nigeria, adding that government would integrate them into society through skills training and provision of stipends to ease their resettlement.

In the past weeks, some batch of these Lybia returnees were brought back, it is hoped that others still left are salvaged.
