“Just yesterday, the 29th of November, 2013. Ifa Muaza, A Nigerian who is almost dead was deported by Harmondsworth Detention Centre on a private charter plane which cost 50,000 pounds. Ifa Muaza embarked upon a hunger strike which lasted for 100 days to protest his detention in Harmondsworth immigration removal centre and at the unfair treatment of his asylum claim.”

“He traveled to United Kingdom because he was lured into joining the dreaded Boko Haram Sect. The Home Secretary Theresa May went ahead to deport the half dead Nigerian from United Kingdom to Nigeria. The Jezebel didnt allow him an in country right of appeal against his asylum removal”

“As at the time of filing this report we dont know if Ifa Muaza is still alive. The action of Theresa May is an introduction of racism in the 21st century. This is purely man inhumanity to man.”

“We are calling on the relevant authorities, human rights communities, National Assembly to intervene in the
case of Ifa Muaza as he is a human being. Theresa May acted contrary to article 2, 3, 4, 5 and 9 of the United Nation declaration of Human rights of which United kingdom is a signatory.”

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. No man is free when others are oppressed. Evil thrives when good men decide to say or do nothing. It is our onus to make this world a better place for us to live irrespective of our race, colour and sex.
