Hi, I am Mustapha, my life is seriously under threat to the extend my house was burnt, I had to ask for extra protection from my working envairoment and recently was attacked by armed guys....I have issues by blowing a whistle on imported arms yo Nigeria by unknown group probably Book Haram. This made me to run for my life as my wife was killed and I have to run to a neighbouring country and life in west Africa is not promising. I have a UK Visa expiring 2019 but UK won't allow me stay more than 30 days since its a Standard Visitors Visa. I am thinking of going to France using Airfrance to use transit and claim Asylum so as to be free. I am at risk here too so could not say my location. Please need help and advise.
I would advise you to look for a specialised lawyer in the UK.
ECRE should be able to help you to find such a lawyer.
ECRE is a European network of 90 NGOs in 38 European countries. It protects and advances the rights of refugees, asylum seekers, and displaced persons.
Another good imput from Marcel, a lawyer always doing a great job on this platform, as Steven too.
"If he arrives by plane, here is a link explaining airport asylum procedure: asylumineurope.org/reports...
Applicants from Nigeria are not automatically granted protection in Germany (like from Syria). He needs good proof that he is fleeing from Boko Haram. If he has no proof at all it can be that he is immediately sent back at the airport (see link). If, on the other hand, he has some proof, he will have a normal asylum procedure (in which his special case will be examined)."
Paolo (and Marcel =) )
gladly there has already been a lot of support here! I hope it could already help you! I think you should definitely follow the given advice and look for lawyers or specialists, that can help you personally with your situation. Thats why it might also be a good idea to check out this useful list of organisations in the UK. w2eu.info/uk.en/articles/u....
On this site you will also find detailed information about the asylum process in several european countries, to get an overview of how the situation in these countries looks like and which country might be a good choice.
I wish you all the best and never give up hope!
