More than 300 Ghanaians living in Libya have returned to Ghana.

According to them, they have been struggling to cope with the harsh conditions in the war-ravaged North African country.

“I have regretted going to Libya. Life there is very difficult. There are robbers who robbed us at a gun point every day. When you report to the authorities, they don’t do anything about it,” one returnee told journalists.

Many of them who travelled to Libya on foot through the Libyan Desert to seek greener pastures said that they were disappointed at the lawlessness in that country.

They have, therefore, pleaded with other Ghanaians not to attempt going there.

They also used the opportunity to call on the government to help other Ghanaians who are still stranded in Libya to return home.

"We paid for the air-ticket months ago but there were no airplanes arriving in the country to bring us back to Ghana. We are pleading with government to save our brothers left behind in Ghana" another returnee said.

About three Ghanaians earlier this month were reported dead in Libya with over 500 people more stranded in that country.
