Germany has banned Nigerians from claiming asylum as the German Chancellor said they were not fleeing from Boko Haram but they want easier life.
German Chancellor, Mrs Merkel just stated Germany is no longer able to protect Nigerians in the country after 10,000 Nigerians applied for asylum. Read more after cut...

She said they presume Nigerians came for economic reasons but it seems they are all looking for easier life.

“We presume that most of them came for economic reasons.”. Speaking after her tour of Mali, Niger and Ethiopia.

So far this year more than 10,000 Nigerians have applied for asylum seeker status in Germany, and 13,000 have applied from Eritrea.

The country is the most sought-after destination for migrants, partly due to Mrs Merkel’s policy to open the borders to them.

This is in contrast to migrants from Iraq or Syria who are fleeing war and persecution in their homelands, notably from bloodthirsty regime ISIS.

She said not all Nigerians who claim to be fleeing Boko Haram are doing so, and are therefore ineligible for international protection under the conditions afforded to asylum seekers.
