Many Ghanaian immigrants in Libya are reportedly dying of starvation, Starr News can confirm. The news station is claiming that three Ghanaians have died from hunger with 500 others dangerously stranded. This the news agency relates to the lack of a Ghanaian embassy in the “war-torn” region.
A Ghanaian immigrant by name Frank Asamoah, is thus claiming to beg government to intervene by repatriating them to Ghana.
“We are facing a lot of challenges in Libya, we have been here for two months and there is no flight from here to Ghana…we can’t get food and even water to drink or bath is very difficult.We lost two Ghanaians last week and just this week we lost another Ghanaian guy. Many of us are suffering from several diseases so we need help from our leaders from Ghana,” Asamoah told Starr News.
Meanwhile, the foreign affairs ministry is yet to comment on this report. YEN will be closely monitoring this report to bring you a comprehensive report as and when we get it.
