Amongst them are eight pregnant women and one with a medical condition.

The Director General of NEMA, Alhaji Mustapha Maihajja, who received the retunees, enjoined them to turn a new leaf as they have seen that there are no greener pastures anywhere outside Nigeria for Nigerians than the greens available for its citizens in the country.

Maihajja who was represented by the Southwest Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu also assured them that the Federal Government is doing everything possible to bring back all Nigerians that are willing to return and special incentives are being put in place for all to restart their lives.
