April 24, 2013 – Nigerian Woman Attempted Suicide In The UK Over Deportation Order (Pictures)
May Brown, a 19-year-old Nigerian woman and a current student at Weymouth College relocated to the United Kingdom from Nigeria over 3 years ago.
After her immigration case was rejected, she met a British Citizen identified as Michael Brown and the lovers got married in December of last year.
According to Daily Mail UK, her refugee claim was rejected by UK immigration officials.
May Brown claims she fled to the UK after she witnessed her dad murdered in cold blood.
According to May Brown’s husband, Michael, UK Border Agency believed their marriage is fake with no emotional attachment.
Though her deportation has been scheduled for tomorrow, her mother-in-law, Helen-Claire Brown believed their marriage is real.

On Monday morning after an attempted suicide, May Brown’s mother-in-law found her collapsed on the washroom floor.
She was immediately rushed to a private hospital where she has remained in coma since.
Below is a suicide note May Brown left before attempting to take her own life on April 22nd, 2013.
I am deeply sorry that I had to go this way, without even saying goodbye.
‘The UK immigration has finally driven me insane. They’ve pushed me too far this time and I can’t take the pain any more.
‘I don’t want a life or a future you won’t be part of. I love you so much, more than life itself and can’t endure the agony of not being with you.
‘Please forgive me for ending it this way. It’s better to die with my dignity than be subjected to torture and undignified death back in Nigeria.’
She said: ‘If they send me back to Nigeria they are signing my death warrant, they will cut my life short because I will be killed.
‘I have found peace with Michael, he gave me a reason to live. I have got a family here and we don’t claim any benefits.
‘Michael works and I am studying to become a barrister, we have not harmed anybody.’
This is serious… May the Lord grant May Brown a quick recovery…
This is the same situation many Nigerians abroad find themselves today.
