That this House notes with great concern that church leader Sunday Ogunwobi and his family have now been living in sanctuary in Downs Baptist Church, Hackney, for over 1,000 days under threat of deportation to Nigeria, making it the longest running sanctuary in modern British history; understands that Mr Ogunwobi has lived in the United Kingdom since 1981 and his wife since 1984; believes that the deportation of this family would have a detrimental effect on the health and education of the Ogunwobi children; and therefore asks the Home Secretary to show compassion in this case by exercising his discretionary powers to life the deportation order and grant the Ogunwobi family indefinite leave to remain in the United Kingdom.
This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
