Stanley Ogieriakhi, a Nigerian man who returned from Libya after losing his sight, has disclosed that his wife left him because he came home blind.
Speaking with YEN.com.gh, Stanley said he lost his sight as a result of the assault he experience when he got to Libya. According to the Nigerian, he alongside others were detained and beaten.
Stanley said their captors would ask them to call people that could send them money from Nigeria or Europe. According to him, anyone who doesn't have people to call will be tortured or killed.
The Edo State indigene who has three kids said it has not been easy for him since he returned back home.
In his words:
"I try to speak to my kids on the phone, but wife does not allow them to talk to me. She told me she was no longer interested in me."
Stanley advised Nigerians against illegal migration, saying the consequence is always dire.
Emphasising the danger of travelling illegally, he said people who embark on such a journey either lose their lives or experience hell.
