108 migrants from Nigeria who were trapped in the Niger Republic were received by the federal government.

This was said in a statement released on Tuesday in Abuja by Mr. Alexander Oturu, Southwest Zonal Coordinator for the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons.

According to the commission, there are 64 people from Nigeria—32 men, 29 women, 44 kids, and three babies.

The migrants were taken to a camp run by the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, where the NCFRMI and the International Organization for Migration have a tripartite arrangement to house the returns temporarily.
