The International Organization for Migration (IOM) confirmed in a statement that it had repatriated 148 Nigerien migrants from several accommodating centres in Libya to their country.

The statement clarified that four of the repatriated migrants were hosts of Tajuora shelter, which was bombed by the airforce of Khalifa Haftar, late last June.

The organization confirmed that its teams on the ground have mobilized quickly to provide assistance to the migrants upon their arrival at Niamey Airport, in preparation for their transfer to their original home towns.
