A returnee from Libya, Benjamin Ocansey, has given a chilling account of the horrible scenarios migrants go through in the hands of rebels.
The returnee speaking in an exclusive interview with Kwame Tutu on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, disclosed how they are treated inhumanly to the point of death.
Benjamin Occansey told the host the rebels sometimes inserts sharp objects into their anal region on the premise of retrieving hidden money.
Narrating how it is done, he said, the rebels will insert the sharp objects including knives in the anal region of men and cut through to the genitals to remove monies hidden there.
The women he disclosed suffer similar treatments because the rebels inserts the knifes in their genital region and anal part to retrieve hidden monies.
Some die as a result of the pain and loss of blood.
According to him, there is no form of treatment after this is carried out, a situation he disclosed causes the deats.
Access to balanced meal he said is an illusion because they do not get access to food and the only option available to them is to use bones of dead human beings as firewood to prepare rice and eat.
The journey to European countries through Libya he added increases on daily basis despite the chilling and horrible stories told by returnees.
When asked why he went to Libya, he revealed his aim was to go through Libya with the aim of revenging a fraudster who defrauded him and escaped from Ghana.
He advised Ghanaians who have planned of traveling to Europe through Libya to rescind their decision and use legitimate means.
The number of deaths recorded on the journey he lamented are uncounted because on the journey, you are on your own and when someone falls off the vehicle we journey on, you are not rescued due to the speed at which the vehicles travel.
More than 100 migrants died in early September when their crowded rubber boats were wrecked off the coast of Libya, the MSF aid agency on Monday quoted survivors as saying.
The two vessels had set out from the Libyan coast early on September 1st, each carrying scores of people, mostly African, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said in a statement on its website.
One boat’s engine failed later that day and the other began to deflate, it quoted a survivor as saying. Some survived by clinging to floating wreckage.
