Canadian authority may dispatch two security agents as escorts to trail the activities of Kemi Omololu Olunloyo as she is due for deportation to Nigeria this Friday.
Kemi Olunloyo, the social activist who helped many less privileged Canadians in their fight for justice was said to constitute a flight risk as her case was heard last Tuesday. .
For more than four years, she had represented the voice of Toronto’s voiceless crime victims, pushing their cases for media attention and police balance of investigations. It was revealed that her refugee application has been rejected by the Canadian Immigration Agencies, precip[itating
She was said to have fled to Canada five years ago from United States, where she was facing criminal charges in relation to social matter.
Canada is only giving her deportation for deportation as failed refugee status application. It was also rumoured that her circumstances could have been connected to her pending United States litigations.
She appeared before an Immigration and Refugee Board detention review committee on Tuesday afternoon at the Vanier Centre for Women in Milton, where she has been held since Canada Border Services Agency officers arrested her at her home in the city’s west-end last Friday.
Immigration and Refuge Board of Canada on Tuesday held an emergency meeting to review her case.
But the sitting came up with a conclusion that there was “no alternative to detention for her than to prepare her deportation to her native country, Nigeria.
“We believe if she is released, she will not present herself voluntarily for removal,” said Robert Gervais, a spokesperson for IRB.
She was also considered a flight risk on Tuesday, indicating that she could have gone violent in her camp seclusion.
Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo, 48, was arrested last week Friday August 17 by Canadia Border Agency after it was discovered she stopped appearing before the authority after her July visit when she was notified of her impending deportation.
She claimed that she was never informed that she needed to appear after the July deportation notice.
She had been reported as having temporarily relocated to Kingston from Toronto.
Officials from Canada Border Agency and Police stormed her Toronto West End residence to whisk her to deportation camp in handcuffs.
She sobbed as she was thrown into a waiting van by the Immigration officers, just as she responded to questions from Toronto Sun: “I refused to open the door and they called in the police,”.
She alleged that Toronto cops, with whom she has worked closely with in recent years, “stormed” her apartment and took her away in handcuffs.
Omololu-Olunloyo told Toronto Sun about how she was allowed to hang-on to her cell phone in order to try to find someone to look after her young son, K.J., who was left behind at a restaurant across the street from their home.
“I was told I’m being taken to a detention centre in Milton and that I’ll be held there until Monday when I have to go before a judge,”.
She appeared before the IRB on Tuesday where the decision not to retract her deportation was taken, an indication that all arrangements for her deportation had been completed.
With no words coming from the authority on Thursday, all the plan for her deportation must have been finalised with all further retraction resting on a last minute divine intervention.
Omololu-Olunloyo arrived at Pearson International Airport from Nigeria, via the U.S., in 2007 with her children and has since filed unsuccessful refugee claims and subsequent appeals.
The daughter of a well known politician in Nigeria has been dubbed the voice of the victims because of her voluntary efforts to help families of murder victims get their messages out to the media and seeking for justice. Her humane activities had no race barriers.
