UK to deport married Nigerian teenager

 An asylum seeker who is married to a British man is fighting for her life in hospital after an overdose just days before she was due to be sent back to Nigeria. 


May Brown, a 19-year-old college student, fled to Britain from her home country three years ago after witnessing her father's murder and being subjected to sexual abuse.
She settled in Weymouth, Dorset, where she met her husband, Michael Brown, 12 months ago and the couple married last December.
Mrs Brown, who was a games maker at last summer's Olympics and has two university offers to study law, applied to stay in the UK but despite her marriage her application was rejected.
Mr Brown, 34, said UK Border Agency officials believe their marriage to be a 'sham' with no 'emotional attachment'.
His wife was told she would be flown back to Nigeria tomorrow.
She was so distressed at the prospect of returning to her home country she took an overdose of medication.
Her mother-in-law, Helen-Claire Brown, found her collapsed on the bathroom floor on Monday morning with a note to her husband saying she 'couldn't live without him'.
The teenager was rushed to the Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester where she remains in a coma in intensive care.
May wrote: 'I am deeply sorry that I had to go this way, without even saying goodbye.
'The UK immigration has finally driven me insane. They've pushed me too far this time and I can't take the pain any more.
'I don't want a life or a future you won't be part of. I love you so much, more than life itself and can't endure the agony of not being with you.
'Please forgive me for ending it this way. It's better to die with my dignity than be subjected to torture and undignified death back in Nigeria.'
Before she took the overdose, May had said she feared her abusers would kill her if she returned to the African country because she witnessed her father's death. Helen-Claire Brown, Miss Brown's mother-in-law, said the 19-year-old is part of the family and blasted border officials as 'heartless'
Helen-Claire Brown, Miss Brown's mother-in-law, said the 19-year-old is part of the family and blasted border officials as 'heartless
She said: 'If they send me back to Nigeria they are signing my death warrant, they will cut my life short because I will be killed.
'I have found peace with Michael, he gave me a reason to live. I have got a family here and we don't claim any benefits.
'Michael works and I am studying to become a barrister, we have not harmed anybody.'
Mr Brown, a former soldier who now works for a removals company, insisted the couple's marriage was genuine and slammed the UK Border Agency for its treatment of his wife.
He said: 'May is the most beautiful, kindest, loving person I have ever met. I can't live with myself if anything happens to her.
'She is the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with and you can't pretend something like that.
'All we want is a life together. But I'm so angry that is being taken away from us.'
Mother-in-law Helen-Claire, 59, added: 'May is a part of our family and the way the immigration service has treated her is so, so wrong and heartless.
'She came here on a student visa and has applied for asylum because she fears for her life if she goes back.
'What kind of world do we live in when a 19-year-old girl who has been through so much already feels she has no other choice but to kill herself?'
Miss Brown is studying public affairs at Weymouth College and hopes to go to university and become a barrister.
A Home Office spokesman said: 'We cannot comment in detail on this case while legal proceedings are ongoing.
'In cases where people are found to have no right to remain in the UK they should leave voluntarily or face removal.'

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
