Maybe you should be allowed to have a one on one chat with few of these returnees,then you will understand why it's better to starve at home than to dead in a desert nation or the risk of drowning in the sea .Friend,Nigeria is tough but it is better to be around your origin  in time of distress .

nigerians need to use commonsense and learn a few lessons in Geography before embarking on any journey.
desperation, greed and stupidity are the common denominator in most of these journeys.
