*Support Tunde after being deported unlawfully by secret charter flight to Nigeria!*
Tunde Olamide* is currently in hiding, penniless, and fearing for his life.
He had fled Nigeria in 2007 after Boko Haram killed his family.
He claimed asylum in the UK but wasn’t told the outcome, and was given 1 day’s notice before being unlawfully deported by secret charter flight in 2017.
“They chained me to take me to the flight. They tied belts on my body. There were 2 people to hold me and drag me inside the plane. I could not breathe very well, I am still feeling the pain now.”
It was only after he’d been deported that the Home Office realised their “administrative error” and sent their decision on his asylum application to his former lawyers. But it was too late.
After arriving in Nigeria, Tunde was kidnapped. He managed to escape and is now living in hiding.
He is destitute and has no family or friends left in Nigeria, having lived in the UK for more than 10 years.
Contributions will go towards finding stable accommodation and costs for starting up a food-selling business.
*Tunde is using a pseudonym because he fears persecution in Nigeria.
