- 28-year-old Jennifer Mande had left for Libya in 2016 with her husband and two kids but returned in 2018 empty-handed
- The Nigerian woman narrated how despite having an ulcer, she went without food for two weeks while her kids survived on people's urine
- Now making ends meet and fending the kids with her hairdressing skill, Mande said going to Libya in search of greener pastures is not worth it
A 28-year-old woman has stated that going to Italy through the Libya desert is not a journey she would advise anyone to embark on as Nigeria is better than the country.
The mother of two made this statement in an exclusive interview with Legit.ng where she recounted her 2018 journey to the North Africa country.
The woman named Jennifer Mande - from a polygamous family - stated that they had intended to get to Italy through Libya but encountered life-threatening challenges that included starvation.
The bitter Libya experience
Mande recalled how lack of water and food forced her kids to survive on people's urine while she went hungry.
Her husband lost his life in the course of the journey that saw the young woman move from prison to prison in Libya.
She discouraged those considering making such trips to desist from it as Nigeria is very much better than their supposed destination.
