Sept 20, 2013 – Nigerians Detained By London Immigration, UK Border Agency Decry Modern Slavery “We’re Dying In Detention”

The President of Nigerians detainee in Harmoundsworth immigration detention centre in London.

Dear sir,

Petition Against Nigeria High Commission UK London


I have the honour and respect to write you this few lines which i want to bring to the notice of Nigerian government the way and manner we’ve been detain unlawfully in the UK border agencies. We are dying in detention without any crime whatsoever. People with valid student visa coming to study in the UK for the first time have been arrested and deported without any reason and with the good help of the Nigerian high commission staff who now used that an opportunity by collecting £500.00 on each person for deportation from the u.k border agencies to enable them facilitate removal to Lagos Nigeria by the charterer flight.

I’m begging the Nigerian authority to come to our aid. So many pregnant woman are in detention in hundreds, even men of God that come for crusade. Our human right are been kept under carpet and some people are half dead before been put into the plane to Nigeria.

It has now become so worst that the Nigerian high commission can even issue T.C (Travelling Certificate) to Nigerians, Ghanaians, and Ivorians immigrant.

The oga on the top at the Nigerians high commission who has full knowledge of this knows that Nigeria is being used for easy destination for some Africa immigrants even the immigration will say it to our face that Nigerian high commission are so friendly.

We shall be very grateful if this should be call to a stop and save us from the head of the evil people, we are dying in this unlawful detention whereby the court are not public court and nobody is giving fair trial, no justice.

We are all surprise that the United Kingdom that preach human right are now the very country violating the law of the United Nations.

The fact remains that we’re being targeted by the UK border agencies just because we are Nigerians and what’s happening here right now is nothing but new modern slavery and over 5,000 Nigerians are in various detention centres in the UK. These people have been detained unlawfully without bail, people are forced to sign document to be deported.

I stop so far.God bless the Federal republic of Nigeria. Urgent please.


Kenneth Odion.

    Instead of crying foul in a white man’s land, why can’t u come home and make Nigeria a great nation.
    I think u guys r cowards looking for easy ways out of life.
    Whether u like it or not, those rulers have right to mistreat u.

    I can testify to this Africans and not only Nigerians are very lasy.
    In my building we have over 20 baby mama of African origin.
    They keep making babies with no reasonable jobs while I wake up in the morning to get to work. most of these women are uneducated who can’t speak English.
    No wonder why their countries are not developing. I urge respective immigration officials to be more tough on unqualified immigrants

      September 20, 2013 at 7:45 PM

      John, Carole said the truth. How can you make babies and hope someone to support that baby for you? if you know you are not capable of taking care of a child, do not make one.

    Africa in general will surely become better, any day we wake up and realise that the only problem we are is not able to walk away from the evil slave master, who enslave us for six hundred years , and we failed to think of the brutal experience and torture that these so called did to us , we are enslaved in physical , and spiritualy , instead of you to use wisdom to make our life better , we continue , searching for spirit , we only want something for nothing , all of us need to start thinking of how to stop this mentality that say , without these so called , we can not live a better life . it is time we reorganise. and do our own thing. there is no chance at all for us , there are millions in prisons everywhere , and what is bothering us all is lack of choice , we like to live a photocopy life style , just because my friend bought jagua , i , too must buy one , oh my neighbours are going to Dubai , i must go there , because God has done it for them he must do mine , what a scroungers you all are , including me . it is time to talk sense to ourselves and use wisdom .

      Mrs. Ohio, you said the truth. Many of our people go there just to say “I have been to” and when they get there become nuesance top the community. Many of them come to America here to become fraudsters of all kinds thereby bringing shame on those who are hard working. Another issue is home people who compare you to those who obtained their wealth through illegal means (unknown to them). How can some one come here and within 6 months goes back to Nigeria to errect the so called mansion and those gullible people do not ask questions. Some of them their children are languishing in jails here. I know a lot of them.

    Well As far as i am concern with this matter, If Nigeria is a commonwealth country, they shouldn’t be detained unlawfully by the UK Boarder Agency/Immigration, because i believe the British are our colonail master, which is the reason why we speak Engish, As for the aspect of Nigeria High Commision Issuing Emergency Travel Document for detainee, shouldn’t be stopped, it has come to my attention and notification that the a Nigeria High commision are not helping the matter of the citizens they are suppose to support in the U.K.

    well as far as i am concern with this matter, If Nigeria is a commonwealth country, they shouldn’t be detained unlawfully by the UK Boarder Agency/Immigration, because i believe the british are our colonial master, due to reason our rights shouldn’t be taken for granted by animals, As for the aspect of the Nigeria High Commission Issuing Emergency Travel Document for Detainee, should be stopped by that useless and wicked Nigeria High Commissioner, It has come to my attention that the Nigeria High Commisoners are not helping the matter of the citizens they are suppose to support in the U.K, they rather make situation worse for the detainee, imagine if they get deported/removed from the U.K who will provide provisions for them? let us be fair with this matter.

    September 23, 2013 at 6:54 PM

    what a shame, it is very true that Nigeria High Commisioner does issue travel document for any detainee who claims he or she is from Nigeria, i was a ex detainee before back in 2010, there was a time Nigeria Commisioner issued me a travel document to go Nigeria without having satisfactory proof i.e (Passport/Birth Certificate/citizen card) if i’m Nigerian or Not, off which really and truly i am from Gambia, the UKBA/Immigration had to compesate me for attempted deportation/removal to country i don’t belong to. which means any balck republican who claims he or she is Nigeria can be deported/removed without having any satisfactory proof establishing if the person is a Nigeria citizen or not, i definitely agree that the Nigeria High commision does collect undercover bribe from the Immigration/UKBA what a shame, Nigeria High Commision can easily destroy people life, there is a proverb that leadership by example, birds of same feather flocks together. what a disgrace to Nigeria political leaders and representatives
