The Federal Government of Nigeria has welcomed back 108 Nigerian migrants who were stranded in Niger Republic. These migrants, including men, women, children, and infants, were received with the support of the Nigerian Mission in Niamey and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
The migrants were brought to Lagos, where they will receive temporary shelter at the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency camp. The National Commission for Refugees Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI) has a tripartite agreement with the IOM to provide this temporary shelter for returnees. They will also be given an onward transportation allowance to reach their final destinations.
The safe return and reintegration of these stranded migrants highlight the government’s commitment to assisting its citizens in challenging situations abroad.
