The migrants were said to have been abducted by some criminals and detained in a kind of prison called ‘Tranki’ in Sabha, Southwestern Libya, where they were tortured and starved.

The abductors allegedly demanded a ransom of 8,500 Iraqi Dinars (N2.3m) each from the victims as condition for their release.

“We just lost this girl to the hands of tranki in sabha they were coming to Libya and their car broke down at gatron so people came and carried them to Sabha and put them in tranki demanding for 8,500dinars each with beatings and starvation and this lady died yesterday.” Vahalla wrote.
