The Libyan Ministry of Justice said Friday that it had released 84 inmates, along with their children, and had deported them back to their country, Nigeria.

“The deportation was carried out by the team tasked with following up all the legal procedures of those who were released by court orders, whether they are illegal migrants or criminally convicted,” the Ministry said in a statement.

The deportation was done in presence of both countries’ officials.
