Germany Clamps Down On Nigerians!

Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, has banned Nigerians from seeking asylum in the country.



The German authorities have claimed that most Nigerians fleeing the country to Germany were seeking a better life.

According to Angela, most Nigerian migrants were not victims of Boko Haram, but hiding under that as an avenue to get asylum.

She said that Germany opened its boarders to Nigeria so as to help give them protection but that privilege has been abused.

Angel Merkel, said that this year alone about 10,000 Nigerians applied for asylum seeker status in Germany, and 13,000 applied from Eritrea.

Germany, qwhich is one of the most sought after destination for asylum because of its open policy has now closed its borders.

Speaking after her tour to Mali, Niger and Ethiopia, she said “we presume they are coming for economic reasons which is in contrast to people in Syria, Iraq, who are fleeing from real persecutions in their homeland, notably from ISIS.”
