Legit.ng gathered that the returnees arrived at the cargo wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 1.20 am on Friday, October 26.

They were brought back in a Buraq Airlines Boeing 737-8000 aircraft with registration number 5A-DMG by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) under its Assisted Voluntary Return Programme.
