Presidency has cautioned Nigerians migrating to Europe to stay away from Libya.
According to the Special Assistant to the President on foreign affairs and diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, illegal migration attracts death penalty in Libya.
Dabiri Erewa, reacting to a video of the alleged killing of blacks in Libya, said the country has been killing illegal migrants for years.
The presidential aide recalls that when she was the House of Representatives diaspora committee chairman, the committee had to intervene in the case of 24 Nigerians about to be executed in the North African country.
She also recalled that two months ago, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) evacuated about 2,000 Nigerians from the country.
