Application For Revocation Of Deportation Order
Brief Background: I was in UK with my pregnant wife in 2006 with 6 months visa due to the challenges we faced from our different tribes over our marriage I am from a forbidden tribe called Uneme Nekhua. I took up employment in April 2008 to be able to take care of my family with a false name since I did not have right to work. UK immigration arrested me in 2008 for violating immigration law and for working without permission; hence, I was sentenced to 6 months imprisonment at the UK court with recommendation for deportation. My sentence finished in September 2008 but I was held in prison and detention where I had my asylum interview, decision and court judgement regarding my asylum /human right claims till December 2008
I lost my human right and asylum case at AIT court before I was released from detention in December 2008 with conditions that I must report to over three miles to immigration office with tagging and daily restriction since I could not be deported since my wife asylum case was pending between December 2008 to May 2010.
In July 2009, my ex-wife called the police that I abused her in order to escape the impending deportation and precarious situation the immigration has subjected our family into without giving consideration to the fact she was pregnant. The police investigated and did not report any abuse against me though she never denied me access to our children when the UK authority changed her accommodation from mine and I have been paying my children with her a visit weekly because I was restricted and detained to my accommodation due to the deportation order signed against me.
In March 2010, my wife gave birth to our second child, I demanded from immigration officials to ease my conditions of detention to be able to visit my new born baby and to assist my wife in taking care of our old child by taking her to school, I was asked to report to the police station I was detained at the police and later driven to immigration holding centre before I was later forced out of UK in May 2010. I have lost a child to circumcision in Nigeria and my family has refused to continue relationship with me, now, I have no access to my two children in UK since May 2010 anymore due to enforced deportation order and my wife is no longer in relationship with me. All the letters of recommendation sent to UK immigration by African Community Centre in Swansea UK was ignored
The relationship between me and wife has therefore collapsed due to the immigrations excessive interferences by way of detaining me for over a year at home and access I have with to my children have been halted due to deportation.
