Speaking to newsmen, one of the returnees named Ms Titilayo Kayode-Owojori from Ile Ife, Osun State, who is pregnant, regretted embarking on the ill-fated journey

She said:

 “Nigeria is far better than where we thought we could get better lives. The Libyans live with the sweat of the blacks.

“If the Arabs see us working and collecting wages, they wait and burst our houses to collect the money. If they don’t see any money, they will kidnap us and ask us to call Nigeria to send us money to free ourselves. If we can’t raise money, we will be sold or imprisoned.”
