Edo State governor; Godwin Obaseki 

Apparently embarrassed by the high number of Libyan
returnees from Edo state and in a bid to be proactive in subsequently curbing the challenges of illegal
migration, Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki has appointed a Senior Special
Assistant (SSA) on Human Trafficking and Illegal Migration.
Abaseki announced the appointment of a Benin based
Human Rights Activist and President, Initiative for Youth Awareness on
Migration, Immigration, Development and Reintegration (IYAMIDR), Mr
Solomon Okoduwa.
He has been at the forefront on the awareness on the
dangers of illegal migration and benefits of getting engaged back home in
Nigeria and Edo in particular.
The State Attorney General and Commissioner for
justice, Prof. Yinka Omorogbe on Thursday disclosed that 1,439 returnees had
been received by the government from late October to date.
No fewer than 200 Libyan returnees were received by
government on Friday in Lagos.
Omorogbe said that after documentation of the
returnees, they were allowed to return to their home while others are
accommodated by government for reintegration.

The Commissioner said that the state government pay
monthly stipend to the returnees, adding that the returnees would later be
engaged in an empowerment programme in January. (NAN)
