AVOID LIBYA, BLACK IMMIGRANTS WARNED

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.

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 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. 

The Committee, in collaboration with SERAP,
an NGO,  petitioned the UN, AU, ECOWAS, and Ghadaffi yielded to pressure
and released them.

As at two months ago, NEMA alongside, the Nigerian Embassy in Libya evacuated over 2000 Nigerians from Libya.

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

Libyans are dealing with their own struggles 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.
