Inspite of all killings going on in that Country. I taught the Federal Government is trying to evacuate all Nigerians residing in that Country because of on going massacre of Nigerians.
What is wrong with some people who fail to pay attention to unjustify killings of foreigners in Libya?. I understand most people are tired of Nigeria situation but why Libya? Do you have special immunity that the rest of other Nigerians? You should count yourself lucky. May be God is trying to save your damn ass.
