African Migrants Execution: Nigerians Warned Against Travelling To Libya

January 24, 2017 – Nigerian Migrants Warned Against Travelling To Libya Over Leaked Video Of African Migrants Being Executed

The FG has disclosed that no fewer than 2,000 Nigerians were evacuated from Libya in the last two months following the emergence of videos and photographs of Nigerians being killed in the North African country.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who confirmed this in a statement yesterday, warned Nigerian migrants against travelling to Libya illegally, saying “the penalty, when caught, is death.”

“The attention of the office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora has been drawn to a video and pictures being circulated on the purported killing of black immigrants in Libya,” she said.

“While the authenticity of the pictures and tapes in question cannot be verified, it is a known fact that Libya has been executing alleged black illegal immigrants for years.

“As the Chairman of the Committee on Diaspora in the House of Representatives in the Seventh Assembly, we intervened in the case of 24 Nigerians about to be killed in Libya,” Dabiri-Erewa added in the statement. She said the committee, in collaboration with Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), a non-governmental organisation (NGO), petitioned the UN, AU and ECOWAS, prompting the then Libyan leader, late Muammar Ghadaffi to yield to pressure and released them.

“As at two months ago, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), alongside the Nigerian Embassy in Libya, evacuated over 2,000 Nigerians from Libya,” she said.

“The Nigerian Embassy in Libya, working with NEMA, has relentlessly intervened in cases involving Nigerians in Libya and will continue to do so.

“Libyans are dealing with challenges as there is no recognised government in place.

“The office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, hereby, appeals again to Nigerian migrants to avoid Libya as penalty for illegal migration to Libya, when caught, is usually a death sentence.”

    What are we looking for Nigerians? That we would have to continue to risk our lives embarking on a perilous journey through many dangerous deserts only to end up in libya that is still struggling to make head way politically and that has no central Government. Libya today is awashed with all forms of rebels or terrorist groups that overthrew the government of Muama Gadafi possessing more dangerous weapons vying for power making that country more and more unsafe for any migrants including their libyan citizens. What is more annoying is that,our people making this tumultuous journey to libya illegally, paid heavy amount between $2000 dollas to $1,500 to get to the sea shore of libya and pay even more to board a boat across the Mediterranean sea to Italy. We know all of this but we refused to join them despite the fact that a well known person is into the business of crossing people to libya through the desert. Because we believe we can still make it in nigeria we decided to quit. Illegal Nigerians in libya come back home and start up somewhere,you are going to make it here. Stop looking for a greener pasture in foreign land by taking high risk.

    THERE IS NO gain in trading your life for a supposed “Greener pasture“ that you are not even 100% sure of and getting possible “Death“ instead.

    ANYWHERE CAN BE a success ground as long as God is in it.
    Life is so precious to be wasted or ended in bellies of some Sea creatures in the bid to seeking for a greener pasture.
    Many are perishing for lack of knowledge.

    Send a plane to Libya and get the Nigerians there if you care about Nigerians or humanity.
    Yes they made a mistake going there but leaving them to be executed by those who careless about tsking lives is wrong.
    The govt making a public statement not to go there is not enough. PLS HELP THEM. SHOW YOU CARE. America, UK or any serious country who care about its people wont leave its citizens to their fate. Guys in media should pass this on.

    Why will we Africans allow foreigners to come and take over our countries in ways of working and staying, but they dehumanize our own people. God forgive them. It is sad, our leaders because of corruption and bribery allow or make it easy for the foreigners to enter our countries meanwhile they use our people and kill them.
