UK Immigration Officers Killing Nigerians In Detention Centers – Activist Laments

March 31, 2016 – UK Immigration Officers Killing NIgerians & Africans In Detention Centers,  Corpses Buried In Mass Grave – Activist Laments

A Nigerian-British politician and activist, Professor Alexia Thomas has raised the alarm over what he described as underreported deaths and mass burial of Nigerian and other African immigrants in the United Kingdom.

In an exclusive interview with Daily Sun, Pro­fessor Alexia who is also the founder and chairper­son of the Commonwealth Liberation Party in the UK, as well as founder and president of Indepen­dent Diplomat Commission, said many Nigerian immigrants are kept in detention centres for more than two years before they are deported.

About 200 Nigerians were recently deported to Nigeria from the UK. The UK government, follow­ing uproar from pressure groups, had cited alleged breach of immigration laws as the reason behind the mass deportation. Other Nigerians have also been deported from other countries including Italy and Liberia, in recent times.

But Professor Thomas alleged that some of the detainees are sometimes exported to other European prisons, where they are kept for months before they are finally deported to their various countries of origin.

“Since the detention centres came on stream, so many black people have been killed. They bury them in secret graves. The immigration officers in the UK have confirmed that 12 people have died in these detention centres.

”The letter from the Immigration Office in UK, affirmed that 12 people died and that letter was written in 2008. People still die in these deten­tion centres everyday. In 2008, I set up a desk for people, especially Nigerians to know if their people are among those confirmed dead,” she said.

She also spoke on the abusive nature of the Brit­ish Immigration laws. “Some of them have been there for two years. I remember in 2008, I said terrorists are not kept in detention centres for more than 28 days. So, why would they keep people who have not committed any offence for more than two years? The immigration law in the UK is very abusive. Whenever they are not able to deport you, they just leave you there to waste away.

“UK Immigration officers are losing it. They just kill these immigrants and hide under the story that they resisted deportation. When they kill these people, they do not tell their families that they are dead. What they do is to bury them in mass graves. These things are happening because African governments do not care about their citizens,” she said.

    I totally disagree with the writer. UK is one of the most tolerant country in the world when it comes to illegal migration. I am not saying some illegal immigrants may not have died but to say they deliberately killed them is not true. I know UK t as a country that respects the human right of its citizens no matter what. Please Mr writer think carefully before you write because what so many Nigerians have gained living here, (UK) they will never gain living back home. Your country go fit give you food eat for one month? Please just hold your peace.

    You just sum up the whole tragedy that Nigerian government don’t care about its citizens wether in Naija or UK. No be GEJ, Badeh, Amosu, Dasuki and the rest shared money for ammunition to fight Boko Haram in their living room. Do you really think black race care about its people? No, we dont.The same people that sold their brothers as slaves don’t care if they die on the street everyday even in their nation. The problem is the black race. And the hate from the white dates back to history.Na curse of Egypt we dey suffer, that’s why we don’t succeed as a nation but individually. It is deeper than what you see bro. Pray your own way out of this curse.

    I am a Nigerian living in the UK. This is a big big lie created to mislead. Whilst I am not saying noone ever died in detention because people die in detention everywhere (white british die in police detention too). The UK is not not a racist coountry. Infact it is 1 of if not the most migrant friendly and liberal countries in the world. Just about anyone gets away with anything in the UK by invoking the human rights laws. I don’t know why people just love telling lies. Illegal immigrants live freely in the UK unlike most of the other European countries. As long as you keep out of trouble you are largely left alone. Other European countries demand you carry ID at all times. UK does not do this. I rest my case

    This happened in Canada too.We have people who have been in the detention centre for over two years. We have children,women and men.The way the immigration officers treated failed assylum seekers was really bad.They put shackles in both hands and legs and treated them like criminals.Whereas,they brought 25,000 terrorists from Syria by giving them automatic permanent residency,work permit and social insurance no at the airport.

    One thing I the test from some of Nigeria Citizens is their lack of well thought out criticism before rushing down to social media to dump their rubbish.

    Can any of this people crucifying this writer, don’t understand that Nigeria among other Africans are not by any means given the slightest respect or regard, no matter how you compute yourself with these western bigots who feels they can do anything the wish with you, because the so called government officials of our various countries are noting but waste tissue papers before them.

    Which Nigeria can vouch of having gone to any Nigeria embassy all over the world and receive a friendly service without being treated shabbily, talk less of intervening for their citizens? Many will want to justify this brutish treatment mated to our citizens due to the crime the committed but don’t their own citizens commit more hideous crimes more than our people, but these westerners still do everything possible to defend their citizens and even bring them back home if possible. What is wrong in people migrating to other parts of world in today’s global climate for a better life which even some of us gushing out nonsense did, otherwise tell me if you came over as an ambassador?. Are we not seeing many now from the Arab world’s trooping into the western world, as they are the ones that destabilise those countries in the first place?

    We blame our government for every wrong doing, but every Nigeria is also a culprit to the same wicked attitude as we don’t care for our fellow citizens so long as it is well with you. Many of these Nigeria’s being maltreated by these bigots are sometimes the handiwork of fellow Nigeria’s who feels nobody else has the right to live and enjoy the same privilege like them.

    Finally I don’t see any wrong with the exposed write up this woman has posted, simple! **** and her people are *****

      The man is a liar mate. A big liar.I am an illegal immigrant in the UK I was caught and never detained. Only asked to come in to sign weekly. The only illegal immigrants ever detained asre those that are deemed flight risk. Meaning like me they were told to come and sign regularly but failed to do so and were caught again. Same applies to Illegal Immigrants who have committed serious crimes. And even those that are detained are not treated in any horrible way as described by this person. Huge lie.
