Canada Rejects Ex SARS Officer's Application For Asylum Because ''He Contributed To The Crimes Committed By The Nigerian Police''

Canada has rejected the request of a former member of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Olushola Popoola, seeking asylum in the North American country.








Popoola’s application was rejected by the Immigration Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board in Canada because he was a member of the defunct unit of the Nigeria Police Force between 2002 and 2015.
.
Popoola left Nigeria in 2016 for the United States before he travelled to Canada, where he claimed refugee status. His claim was, however, suspended while his case was referred to the Immigration Division for a determination of his inadmissibility.
.
According to the Canadian immigration department, Popoola was subsequently found “inadmissible pursuant to section 35(1)(a) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, SC 2001, c 27 [the Act]” because “the Nigeria Police Force, and the SARS in particular, have committed crimes against humanity from 2002 to 2015” including “corruption and impunity” as well as “extrajudicial killings”.
.
Popoola later approached the Federal Court of Canada to seek judicial review of his determination of inadmissibility, arguing that he had resigned in 2011 but the Force did not accept his resignation, hence he continued till 2015.
.
But the presiding judge, Sébastien Grammond, on April 8, 2021, dismissed the application for judicial review while upholding the decision of the Immigration Division.
.
Grammond also said Popoola resigned for personal reasons, not because he learned of human rights abuses.
.
I am dismissing his application because the decision-maker reasonably assessed the relevant factors for deciding whether Mr. Popoola made a knowing and significant contribution to the crimes committed by the Nigerian Police Force,” the judge ruled.

.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the allegations of human rights abuses and extrajudicial killings culminated into weeks of nationwide protests in Nigeria last October with youths thronging the streets seeking justice for Nigerians unjustly slain by SARS operatives.

    2. It is not aliens that is responsible for the good system in Canada. They have strong institutions. If you are appointed today to head any government institution you won't be better than those who are there today. We criticise and condemn at the slightest but when we are given opportunities out first thought is how to enrich our families and friends. It is a Nigerian thing. Even when your intentions are very good, those working under you and those who lobbied for you to be appointed will frustrate and made you miserable. Not just our leaders, we are all corrupt. We all complain about corruption and all that's bad in our federation but when it favours us we call it connection

  9. If only all other countries will do same to all our corrupt security operatives and politicians who mismanage our funds and whose under their watch there were killings and crimes. America, Germany, UK, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Spain, France and the others should do same.

  10. He’s a criminal. So he resigned in 2011 but for 4 years he continued as a SARS official. Because he saw how lucrative harassing innocent people was. He should come back to Nigeria and suffer.
