The 373 Edo indigenes, who were among the 481 Nigerians returned from Libya on Sunday, are protesting the non-payment of stipend for their transportation back home.
Among them are 73 women, some of who are expectant mothers. They arrived Benin City about 1:30a.m. and were lodged at the Motel Benin Plaza by the Edo State government.
At 7:30a.m., the returnees were seen buying snacks, while those without money begged passersby before the government brought food for them. Many of them looked unkempt, haggard and hungry.
