We Are Better As Slaves in Libya--Nigerians Refuse to Leave Libya as UN, IOM Try to Send Them Back Home
As the investigation is being carried out by International Communities into the alleged slave trade and other inhuman atrocities being carried out in Libya by criminals and rebels against migrants stranded in Libya.
Many migrants are unwilling to go back to their home country, because most of them claim they sold all they had to travel and have nothing to go back to at home.
The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and the United Nation (UN) are trying to free and repatriate stranded migrants who have been held against their will and forced into labour and slavery in Libya, who want to voluntarily go back to their home country, some migrants despite the harsh inhuman treatment and their hopeless conditions in Libya has remained adamant and unwilling to go back to their home country, especially Nigerians.
One Nigerian migrant in Libya, Ajayi Osahmo, claimed he has been away from home for more than 5 years and it is a disgrace for him to go back empty handed without achieving his dreams.
About 150 Nigerians including 70 women and 28 children will be repatriated back to Nigeria today. Thousands of other Nigerians in Libya continue to hide and evade the IOM and UN rescue officials who are trying to help them.
