Miss Gift Peters was one of the people deported from Libya and she had this to say
When I got to Libya, it was not in my mind to continue with the journey. So I asked the person that took me to return me to Nigeria but he started maltreating me and sold me to someone who has a connection house in Libya where we were maltreated daily.
If we don’t want to work, they will start maltreating us. They will do you something that you will wish to die.
Those who they sold us to, sometimes, use iron and start burning us. At times, they will instruct our fellow ladies to urinate for us to drink as meal for the day.
I managed to eventually contact my family in Nigeria and I was fortunate to make it back alive unlike many of my peers who joined me on the ill-fated journey.
