R U FOR REAL??
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by smithbarry: 11:53am On Mar 24, 2015|
dishonest and intergrity is d major problem we are facing in nigeria.what prompt him to lie in the first instance.this is not a matter of self confidence,he/she tend to be liar.
i dnt c the reason why u will lie with immigration because they are not like nigeria immigration that u will bribe by putting $50 into ur passport bfore u can be departed...All those things tarnished nigeria image.this will be a lesson for everyone of us....and you know the situation of the country now in foreign perspectives.....
those that have application in embassy will undergo thorough screening exercise no..
i have relatives there but they are not aware of my visitation as i dont want them know dat am arroud.my visitation base on meeting not for seeking for relatives...basic

babeface3:I just hate it when these useless whites start thinking they are here to do the whole black world a favour when you visit them.
If someone's Uk number is in my phone but I have made confirmed hotel accommodations for my stay, how is that Immigration's problem.
Though I won't claim to know UK immigration laws but this particular one is so ridiculous.
Dude wasn't planning to put up with the inlaw, so how is that a problem?
Anyway, what do I know about British Law?
And for some people saying why didn't he say it, I travel to anywhere I like and lodge in the best hotel I can afford without bothering any family/friend that I know in that city, as long as they are not part of my reason for visiting at that time.
Sometimes, it's even after I've left that I call and chat them up on how I visited their city.

They have no right to check his phone know your right wherever you go. They know we don't know anything now so they treat us like animals. They can't even demand your passport its a Nigerian property.

It's not about knowing the uk immigration rules it's about being honest. All he would have said was yes I do but I never intend seeing her.
It's called deception simple.

What are you saying my brother?

Anyway, I will admit that the world's security situation is making everybody to be on the edge these days.
But the fact is that sometimes there are people you know but you don't want to be identified with, for personal reasons.
It would have been different if the guy submitted her name as a relative in his VISA form, and then deny her on entry.

Its his fault

Are you sure that's the truth, cos from my own experience as long as you have a reasonable reason you will not be delayed at the counter. And for them to have asked for his phone, they must have suspected something

There is more to this i'm sure because immigration just do not take your phone and indulge themselves, first off he should have said the truth and secondly he might have given them wrong vibes. Also they would have assessed him as a potential illegal immigrant. It's not that he had a visa on arrival or visa exemption so he has gotten a uk visa and during the visa stage there wasnt any hiccups but i like to think that on arrival in the uk the guy must have pushed the wrong buttons on arrival and that resulted to his deportation. Well as the saying goes, a visa isn't confirmed proof of your entry to any country. Anything can arise on arrival.

Nigerians generally cant do without lying it has gone beyond habbit and has formed innate culture. look @ somebody that filled Female as his gender in a form and appeared as a male @ a job interview.
when quizzed, he said 'ladies see favour more than men'

U are as pathetic as ur responses!
Its obvious that u are allergic to doing the right thing that is why u abhor taken corrections.
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by byrron(m): 1:09pm On Mar 24, 2015|
U are absolutely correct.
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by desiji: 1:16pm On Mar 24, 2015|
There must have a been considerable doubts before immigration will call the party and secondly nobody knows if the Sister in law told immigration that she knows he is coming and would be staying with her. Which does not tally with what he has told immigration.
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by ttmacoy: 1:19pm On Mar 24, 2015|
I agree there is more to the story as before the UKBA take your phone and go through they must have seen something to make them believe he was not coming for what he claim.
With regards to explaining why he said he knew no one, unfortunately once you have been caught in a lie you lose credibility and asking for a reason to explain why he lied doesn't cut it.
This is a country where politicians step down when caught in a lie. The chairman of the Conservative party was recently caught in what I would say is small lie in the grand scheme of things and the guy is under so much pressure from the press and opposition.

Sometimes we make mistakes and think " just a little lie wouldn't hurt. But or thinking pattern is quite different from that of a westerner. For you to lie about the simplest thing as that shoe that you have something to hide. learn to say the truth always
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by dondo83(m): 1:22pm On Mar 24, 2015|
Even from the op's story I can smell something fishy. "he travelled to uk to have an important discussion with a friend" You travel 6hours and waste over 300k so as to have an important discussion with a friend ? With mtn I bet you wont spend 20k calling . This wasn't a business trip from what I can deduce from the story . I hope he wasn't only deported he should as well be remanded in ikeja prison for a week!
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by Nobody: 1:27pm On Mar 24, 2015|
Seriously I don't see what the OP narrated as a flimsy reason...
Maybe anxiety took the better part of him and his eyes were rolling like someone that fart in a commercial bus
The person behind the counter couldn't just get his head around why a man thats travelling for international business cant compose himself. Then he lied
Instead of drilling him and wasting time and resources they just quietly sent him back
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by foloko: 1:30pm On Mar 24, 2015|
The guy was unlucky. Same happened to me,when i applied for my visa i had friends in uk but didn't have thier addresses and phone numbers.cos we were not keeping in touch.cos of dat,i filled my form dat i didn't know anybody in d uk.after my first and second visits,i got in touch with them.then,i had 2 years visa.on my third visit i planned to stay one week in d hotel and d second week with a friend.d hotel i booked was at Milton Keynes very close to my friends house.d immigration officer frowned at d choice of Milton Keynes cos its far from London hence he detained me.i quickly called my friend and he called his lawyer and told me to quickly delete all uk nos.on my phone.they took my phone checked for uk nos.,took my finger prints and called my friend who said he invited me to his house for a week.my account details was checked in Nigeria my atm balance was checked, my luggages were checked despite d fact dat ve been to London twice b4 then,i ve also travelled to south africa,ghana and dubai.at d end of d day,i was left off the hook after 8 hours. cos of my account balance and my friend dat called. even at dat,they still detain me for few hours anytime im in d uk cos its already on their systems.till my visa expires and i tell them those i know in d uk in my next application before i can be free. ve visited 12 times after then.my next visa application is in july.d guy was just unfortunate.NOTE,anytime ure booking hotel reservation make sure its in London town to avoid suspicions.
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by muffins99(f): 1:34pm On Mar 24, 2015|
I find it difficult to believe this story.
What important discussion does he need to travel to the UK to have? Why cant he discuss over the phone or emails?
Anyway, so he travelled to the UK, and told UKBA that he's meeting a friend but instead of ringing said friend they decided to call someone else altogether and then decided to deport him without speaking to his friend? really There's more to this than has been said here and i can bet that he's lying about what happened. If he could lie to UKBA, what is to say he's not lying about the reason for his deportation?
I saw a documentaty about australia's border control once and a 'nigerian' lawyer who got caught out. He said that he was attending a conference, had a hotel booking, etc. when they checked out all the addresses, no one had heard of him! So of course, he was deported.
People shoud learn to tell the truth.. Lies will always cost more in the end

Take your passport away
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by slimfit1(m): 1:37pm On Mar 24, 2015|
His phone is not a document they have no right to ask for his phone he has all the right not to give it. You don't have to do all they tell you thinking they would let you go. The fact is you look to clean and when you are shit happens men. However if they ask for your phone they might as well as for his pants. They would have to get a warrant to check his phone.
The truth is we all should repair our country so that we don't have to go to other countries. With this kind of president we have progress is in extinction in Nigeria. If we have naira equivalent to pounds or dollars we there should be know reason for other countries to be harassing our passport.

chai, over 300k wasted
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by Nobody: 1:39pm On Mar 24, 2015|
The truth abt UK is that they are one racist country and he shouldn't give any details of someone he knows in UK cos he didn't state it in his application and moreover u can't come and cause wahala for the pple there, who knows if they av a paper to live in the UK ? He prevented a lot of damages for the family and I'm sure the immigration officers will keep an eye on those couples too
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by Siga: 1:49pm On Mar 24, 2015|
slimfit1:... Bros... no warrant is needed to even strip search u if they deem it fit... all u will be given is a page of your right and if u refuse they hand u over to Police.... Everything on u is subject to a search.... its a matter of National Security... The fact that Nigerian Immigration no dey do no make am say no other country should...
|Re: He Was Deported On Arriving UK. by Nobody: 1:50pm On Mar 24, 2015|
There is absolutely nothing wrong with not being attentive and a slave to time!
Just do the right thing in cultures where they even breathe to the ticking of the clock
And that is not the reason we are backwards
The people you admire and love more than your own are the reason
Relative.....and the reason fuelling the lie matters? At least in the African culture...respect that
To spare someone from hurt..or just be cruelly honest?
It is a grey area...sometimes...truth for the sake of itself is off...I certainly would tell a lie if it would be just the kind and protective of others thing to do
Your point is good, but for the Africa hating tone in your post I wanna throw a shoe at you!! If only you knew
