Is lack of money to pay school fees a justifiable reason for the death-trip to Europe by road, when the migrant was able to put together N2million for the same trip?

This is one of the emerging puzzles, as many returning Nigerian migrants brought back by the Federal government from Libya, continue to tell their bizarre stories.

One of the victims, Lucky Akoluche, a 28-year-old man from Ikah North-East Local Government Area of Delta State, narrated how he had to abandon his education at the Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro, for lack of money, only to gather N2million from his sister and friends to make a trip to Europe, through Libya.

But, it was all tale of woes, as he claimed that he fell into the hands of, who were so merciless and brutal that they went to the extent of using their victims to test the efficacy of newly-acquired weapons.

Akoluche, told Southern City News: “The Libyans killed people the way they liked. When they bought new guns, they used human beings to test the guns. They call us black monkeys.

“I left Nigeria for Europe on April 25, 2016. I wanted to go to Germany, but I had to go through Libya. I left Nigeria because of the suffering that my family and I were facing.

“I was in the second semester of my first year in Ozoro Polytechnic. But I could not continue because of lack of money to pay my fees,” he explained.

“So, my sister assisted me with some money, which I used to travel. My friends also advised me to go. I spent about N2m.

“I regret abandoning my studies for a trip abroad. Libya is not good; I did not know that it was like that. I should have searched for something to do here in Nigeria.

“It is better to stay in Nigeria because many people are dying in Libya. There was no water and food for days.

“People die at sea. About 10 persons died in my presence due to lack of water and food for up to a month. Some decomposing bodies were seen in the desert as we were travelling.

“I thank the government for bringing me back. But I appeal to the government to help me with my treatment. I am also willing to work,” the returnee added.
