For a young Nigerian lady who returned to the country from Libya, the trip to the North African country is not something she'd embark on again in her life.
The JSS 1 dropout told Legit TV in an exclusive interview that she was actually misled into going to the North African country.
According to the second born of two kids, her elder sister was supposed to have gone to Libya but her marriage coupled with having a child made it an unreasonable travel move.
Travelling in her elder sister's stead at age 19, the lady whose identity is hidden said she went high-spirited for two reasons - the hope of a better life and the promise of same.

Botched hope and promise
She said the Hilux that took them (herself and other travellers) got to Libya by night.
On getting there, one thing led to another and the lady found herself in a place called 'Connection House.'
There, a madam broke the sad news to her that she was in Libya to work as a prostitute.
Like marketers, they had a book where they ticked the number of male customers they slept with per day.
The lady stated that she is paid almost N1800 for 'short time.'
Thanks to a free flight that takes people to Nigeria, she got back to the country and now makes ends meet as a hairdresser.
