Mr King Eze Onuigbo arrived in the UK in 2001.He got married in the UK in 2008. The UKBA is now disputing the authenticity of his marriage and has subsequently withdrawn his residence permit. But the greater danger is that if he is removed to Nigeria, he would be harmed, if not killed in Nigeria because of political views and activism for Biafra actualisation.
On 20th November 2006, Mazi Onuigbo participated actively in disrupting the image-laundering project of the Nigerian government called ‘Nigeria Heart of Africa’, which took place at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Hall. Till date, the Nigerian government is still looking for the protesters. Mazi King Onuigbo’s participation in that disruption can be viewed via this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=fvwp&NR=1&v=f5mNjp-ddvk
And the demonstration at the Nigerian High Commission at Northumberland Street can be seen here:
Furthermore, Mazi Onuigbo is a leader and not an ordinary member of a number of pro-Biafra organizations in the UK. He is the founder of Biafra Peace Movement, a member of Biafra Liberation in Exile (BILIE); the current president of the Good Shepherd Movement and former director of mobilisation Biafra Liberation League/MASSOB INTERNATIONAL.
The Home Office Operational Guidance note 2009 states that, "In the southeast over 600 people were arrested and detained during 2005 on suspicion of being members of MASSOB".
"Demonstrations in September 2005, following Biafra Day on 26 August 2005, claimed a reported 6 lives although other local reports indicated as many as 200 may have been killed by police. Ralph Uwazurike, the leader of the group, was arrested in October 2005 along with 6 of his deputies on treason charges."
"According to MASSOB figures, more than 100 MASSOB supporters were in detention as of March 2006".
“... those that take part in illegal demonstrations or other illegal activities [eg raising the
“Biafra” flag or being in possession of “Biafra” currency] may face arrest and
prosecution for any offences that have been committed"
We, the undersigned, call on the Secretary of State for Home Department to grant Mr King Eze Onuigbo (H.O.REF:O1142828) Leave to Remain in the UK because if removed to Nigeria, he would be harmed, imprisoned or tortured if not killed because of his political activities and unalloyed belief in the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra.
