The fifth batch of Nigerian returnees from Libya arrived Port Harcourt International Airport in the early hours of Tuesday, Mr Martins Ejike, South-South Zonal Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), has said.
Ejike, represented by Mr Ebhodaghe Eric, NEMA Chief Administrative Officer, received the 136 returnees who arrived aboard Med-View Airline 5N-MAB at about 1.10 a.m.
Ejike said that few returnees in the fourth batch were still left at the centre, adding that they are from Osun and Ekiti states.
He appealed to concerned state governments to hasten the process of picking their indigenes.
Ejike said the agency would contact state governors for prompt evacuation of the returnees from the fifth batch in the Port Harcourt centre.
