Baraida added, "On the same day, 160 Nigerians will be returned to their country from Benina International Airport in Benghazi in the east of the country."

In 2015, the International Organization for Migration launched the “voluntary return” program for migrants and refugees wishing to leave Libya.

In this context, 9,370 people last year received assistance from the International Organization for Migration to return voluntarily to their country of origin, after 11,200 in 2022, according to the organization’s website.

Libya, located about 300 kilometers from the Italian coast, has become a center for tens of thousands of migrants seeking to reach Europe by sea.

Many migrants are trying to reach Europe from Libyan lands, risking their lives, but thousands have been living in Libya irregularly for years and working in agriculture, construction and trade, especially around the capital.

The International Organization for Migration says that data collected by the United Nations between May and June 2023 indicates the presence of more than 700,000 migrants on Libyan territory.
