Senate Condemns Plight Of Nigerians, Other Africans In Libya

242 Nigerian Migrants Stranded In Libya Return Home

Special Procedures, the largest body of independent experts in the UN Human Rights system, is the general name of the Council's independent fact-finding and monitoring mechanisms that address either specific country situations or thematic issues in all parts of the world.

I am horrified at news reports and video footage showing African migrants in Libya reportedly being sold as slaves.

I urge every nation to adopt and apply the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and its protocol on trafficking in persons and I urge the international community to unite in fighting this scourge.

West African Heads of State, including the Presidents of Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Niger and Togo as well as the representatives of governments of 48 countries will be attending the meeting.

But Mr Rawlings in a post on Facebook titled "In support of our brothers in Libya" said both the black and white Africans are the same before the eyes of Allah and needed to be treated equally. They have stolen the oil that belonged to God's children in Libya.

The reports indicated merchants were preying on vulnerable individuals attempting to reach Europe via the Mediterranean Sea, a route described as the world's deadliest. "But I'll not be surprised if the majority of them were Nigerians".

The Macron group has decided to work with a task force, involving sharing police and intelligence services to "dismantle the networks and their financing and detain traffickers", he said.

His Ghanaian counterpart, Nana Akufo-Addo, said the situation has made "mockeries of the alleged solidarity of African nations grouped in the African Union, of which Libya is a member". Many of the migrants don't even make it to Libya as they died of exhaustion in the Sahara desert, according to the migrants. "They didn't learn to be electricians, plumbers or any other trade".

Ryan says its seems as though the African migrants are welcomed as long as they are seen as temporarily visitors.

"The cause of this destruction is the French government, (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) NATO and the Western elites who will attempt to whitewash this with NATO friendly media", said Lassiter, who is president of Black Men at Penn School of Social Work Inc.at the University of Pennsylvania.

She expressed regret that some of them found their way back despite warnings.

"We will ensure they all return home safely and are rehabilitated", he said.

Another set of 153 Nigerian migrants returned from Libya on Thursday night.

"There are estimates of 400,000 to 700,000 African migrants in Libya".

"You can have as many Frontex (EU border and coastguard agency) agents as you want", Algerian Foreign Minister Abdelkader Messahel told a Mediterranean dialogue meeting of African and EU states in Rome.

But bodies including the AU and UN have accused the European Union of helping to create the conditions for migrant abuse in Libya with their policy of intercepting Europe-bound migrants and returning them to Libya.
