Nigerian refugee in Japan faces deportation

A young Enugu State man, Daniel Chukwuebuka Onoh, who fled to Japan for refuge in the twilight of the gruesome murder of his father and twin brother, Mr. Christopher and David Onoh, faces deportation back to Nigeria from his host country, Japan.

Daniel’s father and twin brother were killed when the rampaging Fulani herdsmen invaded an agrarian community, Ukpabi Nimbo, in the Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State in April 2016, where over 48 lives, including Daniel’s father and twin brother, were killed.

A fact-check by our reporter indicates that Daniel, who fled to Japan following the killings of his father and twin brother and subsequent threats to exterminate his life by the Killers, owing to his alleged membership of the separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), faces deportation.

Further inquiries revealed that Daniel, who upon arriving in Japan sought asylum and assistance from Japanese authorities, was granted a work permit, but an investigation showed that it was recently rejected by the ministry of justice Japan for want of evidence.

Our reporter gathered that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader and his two sons, David and Daniel Chukwuebuka Onoh, who until the attacks were known to be members of the Biafra Separatist group, Ipob, were said to have been threatened by herders prior to the invasion.

Since recovering the corpses of Christopher and David, the whereabouts of young Daniel Chukwuebuka Onoh, who is the twin brother of the deceased David, was a mystery until recently, when he was rediscovered.

Meanwhile, a fact-check indicates that Daniel’s family, who are natives of Ngwo, in the Enugu North Local Government Area of Enugu State, were migrant farmers of Ukpabi Nimbo at the time of the attacks.

Following the ugly incident, Daniel ran to an undisclosed destination for his safety following the bizarre killings of his father and twin brother.

Recall that in 2016, over 60 houses and shops were set ablaze by invading herdsmen. About 56 injured residents received treatment at Bishop Shanahan hospitals in Nsukka, LGA of Enugu State.
