- Two Nigerian lovers, John and Faith, said they met each other in Libya while they were trying to cross to Europe
- Back in Nigeria, John said his condition was far better when he was in the African country as he was making some money washing cars
- Faith, now a mother of one, never had it sweet as she had a horrible experience in prison
Two Nigerians, John and Faith, with different fates but the same dream of seeking greener pastures abroad met and fell in love in Libya.
In an interview with Legit TV team, the two illegal migrants said their plan was to get out of Nigeria by land and cross over to their various destinations from Libya.
While John said he was going to Italy to ply his aluminum-making trade, Faith on the other hand said she wanted to get to France.
The woman said while she was in Nigeria before her journey, she could not further her education after secondary school because there was no financial help.
The couple now has a three-year-old son who they said could not go to school because they have been struggling in Edo state since they were deported.
Festus said despite everything he experienced in Libya, he believed staying there was better than what he is presently facing in the country.
He added that if there is another opportunity to travel back to the African country, he would gladly explore it.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man simply identified as Festus shared his horrible experience in Libya where he travelled to by road.
Festus said he was told that his trip from Nigeria to Libya and then to Italy would only take one week but he almost died when he embarked on the journey if not for the intervention of God.
According to him, he was sold numerous times in Libya and had to call home twice for his family to raise money for his release.
He said that he was shot in the leg when he and others attempted to escape when they were imprisoned. Festus disclosed he was already seeing Italy but he was not allowed to enter. The Libya returnee said he spent three months in prison the last time he was arrested.
