UK retracts asylum policy for IPOB and MASSOB

The British Government has pulled down a notice it published regarding its asylum policy in relation to separatist pro-Biafra groups including; Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Movement for the Actualization of Biafra (MASSOB), and their splinter groups.

In the ‘Country Policy and Information Note Nigeria: Biafran secessionist groups’ released on Tuesday, April 20, the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), had directed its decision makers to consider if a person ” who actively and openly supports IPOB is likely to be at risk of arrest and detention, and ill-treatment which is likely to amount to persecution.”

The federal government of Nigeria had described the decision as disrespectful, inexplicable, and a move that would sabotage her fight against terrorism and undermine its security.

In an email sent to Radio Now and signed by Hannah Dawson, senior communications officer-Newsdesk at the Home office, the British government said the policy is being reviewed and will be uploaded once it is ready. The UK government did not, however, give a time frame as to when the updated policy will be uploaded to their website.
