Irish citizens, classmates, save Nigerian boy, family from deportation


A solidarity protest by some Irish citizens and classmates of a Nigerian boy, his mum and brother who were to be deported from Ireland has saved them from deportation as the Irish government has allowed them to remain in the country.

14-year-old Nonso Muojeke of Tullamore College in Ireland who, alongside his brother, Viktor Muojeke and his mother Chidiebere Muojeke were to be deported, were granted permission to remain in Ireland.

Nonso’s fellow students and teachers staged a campaign which compelled the authorities to revoke the deportation. The revocation was achieved by a  21,000 signature-strong online campaign which was set up by his classmates at Tullamore College.


[penci_blockquote style=”style-2″ align=”none” author=””]“I would like to thank the Minister [for Justice] for the humane way in which he handled my case. I am very grateful to my friends, my school, the Tullamore community and everyone else who has supported me. I am really looking forward to my future here in Ireland.”[/penci_blockquote]

They also printed posters of Nonso and shared on social media including taking to the streets in Ireland to campagn against the deportation.

In a statement confirming the family’s status, the country’s Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of the Department of Justice and Equality confirmed that Nonso Muojeke and his family will be allowed to remain in Ireland.


A statement from the Department of Justice said the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) had revoked the deportation order following what it termed, “a detailed reconsideration of the family’s immigration case in light of court proceedings and the receipt of updated submissions from the family in September.

“The reconsideration was completed towards the end of last week with the relevant decision letters having been issued earlier this week.”

Nonso also issued a statement on Wednesday evening following the announcement that he and his family had been granted leave to remain in Ireland.

“I would like to thank the Minister [for Justice] for the humane way in which he handled my case. I am very grateful to my friends, my school, the Tullamore community and everyone else who has supported me. I am really looking forward to my future here in Ireland.”

The teenager moved to Ireland with his mother and older brother after his father died in 2007. The family reportedly fled Nigeria because of the ill-treatment Mr. Muojeke’s mother had faced. However, their application for asylum was declined in 2009 and they were served with a deportation order.

Mr. Muojeke’s mother continued to engage with the State through solicitors but the family’s application for humanitarian leave to remain in 2017 was refused.

The family can now legally live and work in the country.
