Nigerian married to British takes overdose over fear of deportation •Hospitalised, in coma, may be deported today


A Nigerian asylum seeker in the United Kingdom, Mrs May Brown, who is married to a British man is fighting for her life in hospital after an overdose, even as she has been booked for deportation to Nigeria.

Mrs Brown, according to information, is due for deportation today after British authorities said her marriage to her husband, Michael Brown, was a sham.

Before she took the overdose, May reportedly said she feared her abusers would kill her if she returned to Nigeria because she witnessed her father’s death.

“If they send me back to Nigeria they are signing my death warrant, they will cut my life short because I will be killed,” she said.

According to information gathered on Mail Online on Wednesday, the lady, May Brown, a 19 year-old college student, fled to Britain from Nigeria, three years ago after witnessing her father’s murder and being subjected to sexual abuse.

She reportedly settled in Weymouth, Dorset, where she met her husband, Michael Brown, 12 months ago and the couple married last December.

Mrs Brown, who was said to be a games maker at last summer’s Olympics and had two universities’ offers to study law, applied to stay in the UK, but despite her marriage her application was rejected.

Her husband, Mr Brown, 34, said UK Border Agency officials believed their marriage to be a “sham” with no “emotional attachment.”

As a result, his wife, May was told she would be flown back to Nigeria .

It was as a result of being “so distressed” at the prospect of returning to Nigeria, she reportedly took an overdose of medication.

Her mother-in-law, Helen-Claire Brown, who was said to have found her collapsed on the bathroom floor on Monday morning with a note to her husband, said she “couldn’t live without him.”

The teenager was rushed to the Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester where she reportedly remains in a coma in intensive care.

May was said to have left a note for her husband that she was sorry she had to go this way without saying goodbye.

“I am deeply sorry that I had to go this way, without even saying goodbye.

“The UK immigration has finally driven me insane. They’ve pushed me too far this time and I can’t take the pain any more.

“I don’t want a life or a future you won’t be part of. I love you so much, more than life itself and can’t endure the agony of not being with you.

“Please forgive me for ending it this way. It’s better to die with my dignity than be subjected to torture and undignified death back in Nigeria.

“I have found peace with Michael, he gave me a reason to live. I have got a family here and we don’t claim any benefits,” Mrs Brown said.
