A 21-year-old Nigerian migrant from Edo state identified simply as Victory, who spoke exclusively to CNN from a migrant detention facility in Tripoli, has recounted how he was sold as a labourer and had to work to pay his ransom.

Victory who struggled to control his tears as he speak, said; “After I was sold they demanded a ransom, the pusher man that brought me from Nigeria, I gave him money, he didn’t pay, so they said he did not pay that money, so they sold me,” he said.

He added; “I was there for eight months before I paid my money and I went out."

The smugglers also demanded ransom payments from Victory’s family before eventually releasing him.

“I spent a million-plus (Nigerian naira, or $2,780),” he tells CNN from the detention center, where he is waiting to be sent back to Nigeria.

"My mother even went to a couple villages, borrowing money from different couriers to save my life.”

“Going back home now, I’m totally frustrated, I don’t know where to start from. Because I spent my life savings leaving the country. You understand? It’s very painful, very painful,” he tearfully said.
