“Sir, I’m 15″ – Nigerian Illegal Immigrant Border Force UK Video Goes ViralPosted on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 at 9:36 AM
The video clips features a Nigerian man named Benson who arrives in the UK with a passport with a “permanent leave to remain” stamp stolen from another person’s passport.
When the man is caught, he tries to beg the border control officers and then he spins a tale about how he got the passport from someone called “Uncle London” and then goes on to insist that he is “15 years old”. The Border Force officer asks him for the year he started school, he mentions a date and then changes his mind. He then insists that he is in JSS3 while from his looks, one can reasonably estimate that Benson is in his 30s.
In the end, the narrator tells us that he was moved to a halfway house and is now nowhere to be found!
While the clip is rather funny, it just shows the lengths people go through to leave Nigeria. Sad.
Note: Video was taped in 2009
