(VIDEO) NIGERIAN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN EUROPE BEGS TO BE SENT HOME
A Nigerian man who has been living illegally in Europe since 2016 he is desperate to return home.
In a video posted online, Elijah Amusan begged his home country Nigeria and the European Union to help him return home.
Speaking in Yoruba, Mr Amusan said he has spent 5 years living in Europe as a jobless undocumented immigrant as his efforts to obtain legal documents proved abortive.
The distraught looking man said he spent his first 4 years in Italy where he engaged lawyers in Modena to help him with legal documents but his efforts were not fruitful. He added that he signed a transfer form for him to be returned to Nigeria but he is yet to be deported.
Mr Amusan said he is desperate to go home so as to escape the adverse conditions he is presently living in adding that he has had to sleep in the forests many times.
Mr Amusan said he moved from Italy a year ago and is presently in Frankfurt, Germany.
Here is an excerpt from the online video capturing Mr Amusan’s cry for help: “I am begging all African leaders, world leaders, Nigeria to rescue back home from Rome. I beg you in God’s name. I can’t say more than this but I will say this, which is please help me return home. I’ve spent five years in this country. I have no way out. I tried my best. Many times, I sleep in the bush. Right now, I’m in Frankfurt, Germany, Kish for a year. In 2016, I signed a transfer form that I want to return to Nigeria, but I wasn’t returned. A lot of people have been returned. I beg the Nigerian Government, African Government, please rescue me, I want to be rescued. I want to home and see my children and parents. If I arrive home safe, I would be thankful. I beg everyone, I beg the European Union to rescue my life back to my country. My name is Elijah Amusan.”
