ISS Today: Libya's slave trade shocks AU-EU leaders into action

"The charge d' affairs said a number of Nigerians (and not all of them) do not want to come home".

The charge d'affaires said that the Nigerian government has been in talks with the recognised government in Tripoli on how to reach some of the camps to extract its nationals.

This is even as 300 other Nigerians are to be repatriated from Libya every week.

The Charge d'Affaires of Nigeria in Libya, Illiya Fachano, says some Nigerians in Libya have refused to be repatriated inspite of the "unfavourable situations".

"Certainly, it has to be only those that want to come back home".

"What we do is identify the Nigerians in the camps, register them then issue them an emergency travel certificate but those who happen to be sick get medical treatments before being confirmed to fly".

"The Internationl Organisation for Migration (IOM) has rallied support of the European nations and particularly Italy for the Libyan Coast Guards who are particularly ordered to prevent boats that smuggle migrants and refugees from Libya to Europe".

"We also ensure that we are up to date with the number of Nigerians in specific detention camps".

Fachano said the government would continue to make efforts to save Nigerians that are trapped in Libya.

"We have asked the Nigerian presidency to provide us with an extra airplane to assist with quick repatriation of registered Nigerians who are willing to return".

Fachano said that the repatriation exercise would wont be a temporary thing - as he promised it would be a continuous exercise.
