A disabled Nigerian man, who has resided in the UK for 38 years, is facing the prospect of being forcibly removed from the country by the Home Office, the Guardian UK reports. Anthony Olubunmi George, now 61 years old, arrived in the UK at the age of 24 back in 1986, from Nigeria. Since then, he has remained in the UK and, according to the Guardian, has a clean record with no criminal convictions. In 2019, he experienced two strokes that had a significant impact on his ability to speak and move.

According to George, he no longer has any immediate relatives residing in Nigeria. He is said to have faced numerous episodes of homelessness and admitted that he has lost track of the countless friends who have sheltered him over the years. George said, “I don’t know how many different sofas I’ve slept on – too many to count. I don’t have my life, living the way I’m living now. My health problems since I had my stroke are my biggest worry. All I’m asking for is some kindness from the Home Office.”

“His situation is not just because of Home Office policies but also because of poor representation by previous solicitors who failed to uphold professional integrity and ethical standards.” A spokesperson for the Home Office told the Guardian that, “applications have to be considered on their merits in accordance with the immigration rules with the responsibility on applicants to demonstrate they meet these rules.” The Guardian also covered the story of Nelson Shardey, a 74-year-old newsagent from Merseyside. Shardey has been living in the UK since 1977 and was recently denied indefinite leave to remain by the Home Office, despite having spent the majority of his adult life in the country.
