Nigerian Asylum seekers accuse Germany of inhumane bias

Nigerians seeking asylum in Germany say the country is biased and not humane for attempting to deport them next year.

Some of the 12, 000 Nigerians who are seeking asylum in Germany say it is crime against humanity to deport them on the premise that there is no war in Nigeria.

One of them said there are many reasons why people seek asylum apart from war.

He affirmed thus: “They have lost touch with humanity and reality. You may seek asylum on other grounds other than war. Reasons for seeking asylum are plenty”.

He said the under the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to refugees: ” asylum seekers must prove that they they have a well founded fear of persecution due to their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership of a social group and are unable or unwilling to seek protection from the authorities of their own country”.

It was further explained that there are many Nigerians who fled from Boko Haram and that the Boko Haram threat still exists.

Some of them say the Nigerian government has been struggling for long to stop killings by Bomo Haram, hence they could not seek protection from the Nigerian government.

The Mamelodi Concerned Residents in Pretoria are also calling for the deportation of Nigerians and other migrants on the premise that there is no war in their countries.
