The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Thursday received 98 Nigerians stranded in Agadez, Niger Republic.

The NEMA Coordinator, Kano Territorial Office, Dr Nuradeen Abdullahi, said this while receiving the returnees in Kano.

Abdullahi said that the returnees were brought back to Kano in three luxury buses under the care of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) from Agadez.

“The returnees were brought back through a voluntary repatriation programme for the distressed who had left the country to seek greener pastures in various European countries and could not afford to return when their journey became frustrated,’’ he said.

He said that the returnees included 81adult males, six adult females and 11 children (three females and eight males).

He said the returnees are from different parts of the country including Kano, Kaduna, Katsina and Edo.

“The returnees will be trained for four days to be self-reliant and will be given a grant,” he said.
