I was deeply gripped recently when I heard the story of Morufat Ogunkoya and her three children. I wanted to share with you about them and ask if you would join me in fighting for their lives.
Morufat Ogunkoya and her three children applied for asylum in Canada, fearing for their lives if they are forced to return to Nigeria.
Morufat converted from Islam to Christianity and her father is a powerful Islamic figure in Nasril Fathia, a radical Islamic organization allied within Boko Haram. After facing persecution, intimidation, and violence in Nigeria, she fled with her three children and filed an asylum claim in Canada.
The Ogunkoya family’s application for refugee status has been denied by the Government of Canada, with an IRB judge stating they can return to Nigeria and live in the Christian-majority area of Port Harcourt in the south of the country.
What the IRB is failing to recognize is that they will never be able to escape the threats to their lives in Nigeria. Risking deportation back to Nigeria, the family has gone into hiding while awaiting the results of an application to remain in Canada on Humanitarian and Compassionate Considerations.
To help this family we are joining together with One Free World International to launch a campaign TODAY.
WILL YOU HELP US SAVE MORUFAT AND HER THREE CHILDREN?
