The House of the Representatives on Tuesday asked the Nigerian Mission in Tripoli, Libya to assist by issuing emergency travel documents to stranded Nigerians to enable them return home.
The resolution followed a motion presented by Mr. Chukwuma Umeoji (APGA, Anambra) who said that many Nigerians have been killed in various detention centres across Libya, especially during the bombing of Tajoura detention centre.
He also noted that the United Nations (UN) report indicated that Libya guards shot at migrants trying to flee the Tajoura detention Centre after it had been hit by the bomb;
The lawmaker further expressed concern that the battle for control of Tripoli between the Libyan warlord, Gen. Khalifa and the United Nations backed Government of National Accord will further endanger the lives of Nigerian Migrants in Libya.
The motion was unanimously adopted when Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila put the question.
