President Muhammadu Buhari has set up a 17-man fact-finding mission to bring back Nigerians trapped in Libya.
The team may also open talks with Libyan authorities on how to stop the exodus of Nigerians to the Arab country.
The panel has 38 days to evacuate all Nigerians trapped in Libya.
According to investigation by The Nation correspondent, the 17-man team is headed by Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama.
A source in the Presidency, who spoke in confidence, said: “This is the first elaborate measure put in place by the Federal Government under the leadership of President Buhari. Hitherto, NEMA had been managing reception centres for IOM”.
