I Was Sold Off In Libya, Drank Urine Daily As Meal – Returnee Recounts, Tells Shocking Tale
A lady, Miss Gift Peters, who was among the fresh batch of 171 Nigerians deported from Libya has narrated her ordeal.
She recounted how she got to Libya 11 months ago after being deceived that she was being taken to Germany.
The lady, speaking with newsmen on her arrival at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos, said it was better
to die than face the hardship in Libya.
The Delta State indigene said, “When I got to Libya, it was not in my mind to continue with the journey. So I asked the person that took me to return me to Nigeria but he started maltreating me and sold me to someone who has a connection house in Libya where we were maltreated daily.
“If we don’t want to work, they will start maltreating us. They will do you something that you will wish to die.
“Those who they sold us to, sometimes, use iron and start burning us. At times, they will instruct our fellow ladies to urinate for us to drink as meal for the day.
“I managed to eventually contact my family in Nigeria and I was fortunate to make it back alive unlike many of my peers who joined me on the ill-fated journey.”
