‘I Don See Death Face To Face’; Carpenter Who Fled Nigeria To Libya.


A fresh batch of returnees from Libya arrived Nigeria few days ago. The 160 returnees consisting of 74 females and 86 males (both adults and children), were received by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Mathew was working as a carpenter in Nigeria before he traveled to Libya. “I don see death face to face but thank God I am alive”. “Please don’t follow this route, the land is not greener as you think”, he advised.

Also, a returnee identified as Mrs Adebisi Komolafe, an indigene of Osun State narrating her ordeal said if she had an idea of how bad the experience would be, she wouldn’t have taken the chance.

She, however, called on Nigerians to keep praying for the leaders, saying that if God guides the leaders right, things may not be so bad in the country.

According to her, since she travelled in 2016, she worked as a maid but despite making some money, she could not send anything back home to her family in Nigeria.
