The Guardian on the other hand reported that Nigerians still being held in various private prisons in Libya are in excess of 2,000. These Nigerians, who are mainly within 20 to 35 years of age, who left the country in search of greener pastures overseas, are being held for no crime but for falling into wrong hands in transit.

Some Libyan returnees, who recently came back into the country, recounted their miserable condition in the war-torn north African country, with an appeal to the Federal Government and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) to redouble efforts at repatriating the Nigerians from slavery in Libya.

In the last six months, no fewer than 1,545 Nigerians have either been deported or assisted to voluntarily return from various countries, with the largest contingent being from Libya.

Thisday however went with the story that shareholder groups in the capital market have advised Etisalat Nigeria to settle the $1.2 billion debt it owes 13 commercial banks to avoid a takeover, even as the banks insist on the prosecution of the foreign directors of the company and its principal Mubadala.

The banks claim the Mubadala-appointed CFO of Etisalat Nigeria ( name withheld) diverted over $700,000 from the proceeds of the sale of its towers it earned when it sold to IHS – a Nigerian towers and telecommunications infrastructure provider. According to bank officials, they had financed the import and purchase of the towers through Huawei of China to help build the infrastructure backbone for Etisalat. But when the telco earned hard currencies from the sale, Etisalat failed to repay their USD loans as was done by other telcos like MTN and Airtel.

” It makes no sense that the Etisalat CFO simply exchanged the USD they earned at the official rate of $/ N200 when the forex markets was at almost $/N400 and used it for other purposes”, said a bank risk official at the weekend.
