Hassanat and her children were snatched on the morning of Saturday 9th March to be deported 

Hassanat Aliyu (Home Office Reference Number: A1432864/5) and her daughters Teniola, Adunola and Shaniola were uprooted from their community and deported on Saturday 9th March, 10.20pm to Nigeria, Lagos. UKBA  sent three immigration police to carry out a dawn raid and snatch the family from their home at 7am on Wednesday 6th March, the same morning their fresh asylum claim had been refused, bundle them onto a bus without any warning, forcing them to leave most of their belongings behind, drive them 326 miles to Crawley, near Gatwick Airport. 

The young family had made a life for themselves in Britain. Hassanat fled Nigeria in 2006, because her eldest daughter Teniola, who was barely one year old at the time, was threatened with Female Genital Cutting (FGC). They were both trafficked to Britain and lived in London for four years, later claiming asylum and moving to Byker were the two eldest sisters attended Byker Primary School. Teniola has spent her formative years in Britain and Adunola, five, and Shaniola, three years old, were both born here.
One person is estimated to be deported from Britain every eight minutes according to Tyneside Community Action Against Racism.

Tyneside Community Action Against Racism would like to thank everyone who has been involved in this public, political campaign to stop their deportation.
