Among the them were 100 male adults, 30 female adults and 10 children from various states of the federation including plateau,katsina, Cross River and Lagos respectively, who according to NEMA  would be groomed to be self-dependants in different expertise after which they would be given funds to start up .

The illicit migrants were also advised to desist unlawful migration and see what happened to them as lesson to be used in advocating against uneven journey.

The Agency had also issued clothes, food, toiletries, blankets, mosquito nets, pampers, sanitary pad and clothes for use before they recover from the stress.
