Unity Centre started this petition to home office and

Kudirat was born to a Nigerian polygamous Muslim family. She converted to Christian faith after which she faced persecution from her half-siblings in Nigeria. The Home Office said they did not believe Kudirat was a Muslim that converted to Christianity. We fear for Kudirat's life should she be forcefully removed from the United Kingdom and sent back to Nigeria. The prevailing situation in Nigeria and the persecution of Christians makes it dangerous for Kudirat to be taken back to the country.

Relocating to a Christian state in the country is no assurance that she would not be persecuted because she had converted from Islam to Christianity - a move never taken lightly by the Islamic faithful. This is also bearing in mind that Kudirat has been in the United Kingdom for over eleven years without any criminal record. She has quality family life and ties to the UK and has been volunteering her time to charity organisations such as HOPE UK, educating young people against anti-social behaviour, enable them to make drug free decision, group choir with Harmony and Asmarina Voices.

She also volunteers her time in the Christian evangelism, preaching the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ all over the UK. Kudirat is a partner of the Festival of Life (FOL), an annual event which the former Prime Minister David Cameron and the outgoing PM Theresa May had attended in the past.

Kudirat lives in Leeds, West Yorkshire and has friends and family in the UK. A deportation would be an infringement of her human rights. A forceful removal to a country she left in fears 11 years ago as a result of persecution would be an injustice. 

Please sign this petition to change the decision to deport Kudirat and have her granted asylum in the United Kingdom.
