In another news, it was reported that 162 illegal migrants who left Nigeria to go to Europe have decided to return home.

These illegal migrants voluntarily chose to return to Nigeria. The return was made possible thanks to the cooperation between the Nigerian government and the International Organization for Migration IOM.

98 women, 24 children and 12 infants have therefore chosen to abandon their crossing to Europe via the Mediterranean Sea, some of them due to health problems, TrackNews Online reports.

According to a report by the Nigerian National Emergency Management Agency, nearly 22,000 Nigerian irregular migrants have voluntarily returned from Libya since 2017 with the help of United Nations voluntary repatriation programs.
