The body responsible for combating illegal immigration in Libya, in coordination with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), organized the return of over 320 illegal Nigerians to their country on January 30th, AFP is reporting.

Libya’s rival administrations last year agreed on a Tripoli-based anti-immigration body tasked with coordinating deportations of foreigners who are in the country illegally.

“We carried out on Tuesday the expulsion of 163 irregular migrants of Nigerian nationality from the Mitiga airport, including 107 women, 51 men & 5 children,” said the migration agency’s head of security, Mohamad Baredaa.

In a move coordinated with the I.O.M, Baredaa added that “160 Nigerians will be sent back to their country from Benina airport in Benghazi” later on Tuesday.

AFP reports that the first group at Tripoli’s Mitiga airport on Tuesday were given a laissez-passer before boarding shuttles to the plane.
