Women’s groups and her MP have called for the Home Office to defer her deportation until the investigation is concluded.
The woman, 41, has been told by Thames Valley police that the man she claims raped her has been arrested but was granted bail, pending further inquiries. In a letter to her, seen by the Guardian, dated 6 June, police have told her that the investigation is continuing and that she should stay in touch via email if she is deported.
Speaking from Yarl’s Wood detention centre, where she is being kept on suicide watch, the woman said: “They said if I go to Nigeria I should send an email about the facts. But if I go back to Nigeria I don’t have access to a computer. I don’t even know how to use a computer.” To read more about this story see here
