Nigerian returns home with honour

A Nigerian man who last year helped police in a robbery investigation is to be deported form Austria back to his native Nigeria.

Gabriel Olusola wants to remain in Austria, but is expected to be deported on December 3rd.

There was little chance from the start of the proceedings that he would be granted permission to stay in Austria - but that did not stop him with his act of civil courage.

His asylum claim was rejected last year and his last chance was that he be eligable to be granted a so called 'Humanitarian Right Of Residence'

An application for this can be made in the respective federal state and the Austrian home office then makes the final decision.

The 93-year-old pensioner who was helped by Olusola in the robbery wrote a letter to governor Franz Voves from the SPÖ appealing on to them to support the positive outcome of the Nigerians case.

But this was also unsuccessful.

Lotte Dorudi from the platform "Bleiberecht" said: "He will be sent back on a plane with a normal ticket, not in plane full of detainees. He is returning as a free man. This is very important for people who go back."

In Nigeria Olusola plans to try and set up a wood processing factory with a friend and get himself a new start, but still needs to raise the start up capital.

An appeal has been made to help the Nigerian man start up a new life and donations can be made here:-
