In The Midst Of The Horror, Hardship And Hopelessness, Mabel Emmanuel Found True Love In Libya


As more Nigerians return from Libya, they tell their stories of horror, tears and lamentations, whilst warning other people, who may want to embark on such journeys to desist from it.

Even though Mabel Emmanuel, one of the recent returnees found love in a fellow Nigerian in Libya, she will not forget in a hurry what she went through.

In an attempt to enter Europe, Mabel was kidnapped in Libya and was unable to pay her ransom until Stevens, who later became her husband stepped in and bailed her out.

They fell in love and now have a three-month-old son called, David.

“They kidnapped me in a place called Sabha, that’s when I met my husband. He bailed me out, it was last year and we fell in love. I found out I was pregnant in March this year and I gave birth to my baby in August. I gave birth to my baby in prison, with tears. Even though I was pregnant, they were still beating and maltreating me. But I give God the praise that I’m still alive today and I have my baby and my husband now.”

    The story confuses me. She said “they kidnapped me in a place called sheba that’s when I met my husband ” so does it mean her husband isn’t the father of her child or the story is not clear. Happy for you either ways
