Deportation business again with the Nigerian Embassy

Yet another deportation hearing for Africans in Dortmund is a clear proof of the continuous determination of the Nigerian embassy to succumb to the Colonial pressure emanating from the deportation business.

It started this year in Halberstadt through Dortmund, Ludwigsburg, Munchen, Karlsruhe and etc, as well as those who were forced to appear at the embassy premises in Berlin.

Once again, our ruined and frustrated citizens are to be forcefullydeported back home useless to themselves and the nation at large.

In actual fact these victims services are relevant and needed here but just that Refugee stigma has placed them less than human beings in the eyes of the German authorities.

There are also those who are legally entitled to humanitarian protection based on their health situation but the German as well as the Nigerian authorities have refused to recognize this.

Our minister of foreign affairs was recently talking about amnesty for Nigerians but his direct boys’ keeps up his business interest rather than considering the impact of the deported victims to the Nigerian Nation.

The ambassador has shown his interest in discussing the welfare of Nigerians through his visitation and correspondence with various Nigerian community network as well as the African people congress in this regard but the deportation hearing is going on more like never before.

Based on that, we wish to clearly state that, our protest actions shall continue to gain momentum as long as we do not see practically objective actions to address the whole issue of the colonial heritage.

We are concentrating more on Germany as the Fortress Europe because Germany has intensified her capitalist dominance to Championing the Europeanization of its inhuman migration Policies that circumvent the Geneva convention and the Universal declaration of Human right for which
it was signatory.

But one simple truth remains clear; “we are here because you destroyed our land and Culture”. The Death of the 1000s through the vices of fortress Europe has neither stopped nor decreased the desperation to migrate to the so called developed Europe.

In this vain, we are calling on all progressive Nigerian, African movement to support the ongoing protest action against the collaboration of the Nigerian embassy in Germany.We solicit urgent donations to support this action.

Support the call for Nigerian-Africa Forum

Support the protest action against deportation and all forms of colonial
repression.

Deportation business with Nigerian Embassy – Protest by Human Rights Organisations and Nigerian Community activists

Immigrants and refugees from Nigeria and other African countries living in Germany are suffering massive deportation. They are continuously denied the chance for asylum or regular stay as the German authorities enforce efforts to expel them by force. The Nigerian embassy in Germany is playing a crucial role for this policy: It is actively supporting the deportation of Nigerian citizens
and other Africans by carrying out so-called "identification hearings" for issuing traveling documents (TCs) for deportations. The next of such deportation hearing is planned to take place from 16th till 18th of September
in Dortmund/Federal state of Nordrhein-Westfalen.

Mr. Olushola Adeagbo, spokesman of the Human Rights organisation “Caravan for the Rights of Refugees and Migrants”, strongly condemns the Nigerian embassy’s
support for deportations: “It seems as if the Nigerian embassy has become a central agency for the deportation of African migrants and refugees!”

• “It is one of the most shocking treatments of refugees in Germany that the embassies of African countries are collaborating in this desecration of fundamental human rights. The most prominent of these collaborators is the
Nigerian embassy in Germany.”

• “The aim of the German authourity is clear: Accelerating massive deportation of Nigerians and other Africans from Liberia, Togo, Sudan who are forced to
attend hearings with the main aim to deport them to Nigeria.”

• “The deportation service for the German authorities is a profitable business for the Nigerian embassy as they receive 250 Euro for every interview and 250 Euro more for each Travel Certificate (TC) issued.”

• “Refugees and Migrants are forced to attend “Identification Hearings” against their will through various repressive means including imprisonment, by the
local German authorities.”

It has come to the extent that deportation hearings with the Nigerian embassy is taking place every month, each time in a different region or city of Germany:
The Nigerian embassy officials were in Halberstadt in January 2008, in February they were in Dortmund, March in Ludwigsburg, April in Leipzig, June in Munich and in July they were in Karlsruhe. The latest Nigerian embassy hearing took place from 12th till 14th of August once again in Halberstadt/ Sachsen Anhalt.
Most of the victims were forcefully conveyed to the venue by the police. Some of them reported that they were brought to the Nigerian embassy officials in handcuffs.

Mr. Olushola Adeagbo states about the upcoming Nigerian embassy hearing place from 16th till 18th of September in Dortmund as follows: "Based on the previous experiences with Nigerian embassy hearings, we expect that once again, African
Refugees and Migrants will be facing massive violations of their personal freedom."

Meanwhile, activists of the Nigerian-African community in Germany, together with German anti-racist activists, have started organising complaint and protest against the Nigerian embassy's deportation policy. A meeting of Nigerian
community activists with the Nigerian ambassador Mr. Abdul-Kadir Bin Rimdap has been scheduled for 14th of September 2008. "We want to make clear to His Excellency that our embassy must own up to its real responsibility for the
welfare of its citizens residing abroad rather than collaborating in the deportation abuse and otherwise," says Mr. Rex Osa, spokesman for the Nigerian-African Community Forum.

The Caravan for the Rights of Refugees and Migrants is happy to answer further questions.
