The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) has seen to the successful return of 10,300 illegal Nigerian migrants from Europe.
The Programme Manager, Migration Management Unit (MMU) and Head of IOM Lagos Sub-office, Abraham Tamrat, made the disclosure during a campaign in Benin City.
The UN agency chief noted that the exercise was to sensitise the youths on the danger of irregular migration.
He harped on the need for people at the grassroots to be informed on the menace as well as see reason why international agencies have kept dissuading people from travelling abroad illegally.
“Other chartered flights are being planned to bring in more Nigerians from Libya. But more of the returnees are from Edo State, that is why our activities are increasing here,” Tamrat stated.
