Anna Lo MLA said: “I am disgusted at the Home Office for their total lack of compassion. Comfort and her family are valued members of the community in East Belfast. East Belfast is their home and their lives could be in real danger if they are forced to return to Nigeria.
“How can the Home Office ignore the will of local people and move to deport this popular family.
“Deportation would be devastating for the family and the community. I will continue the battle for Comfort and her family, and will not give up.”
