Among those evacuated were pregnant women, children,teenagers and adults.

Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of Max Air, Ibrahim Kahiru, revealed that this is the fourth batch of the Libyan returnees since the evacuation of Nigerian stranded in Libya started in December last year. About 2,000 of them have, so far, been evacuated.
He said stated that part of the challenges faced during the evacuation is security. And the plane can only leave from Nigeria to Libya when invited by Libyan authorities after due security clearance.
The Spokesman of Max Airline, Ibrahim Kahiru, said the plane landed in Libya at about 7.30 pm and it took about 1hour.30 minutes to get them boarded.
It is expected that various state governments are supposed to pick up citizens of their states for rehabilitation after profiling them.
