Today in Cis Privilege: Nigerians due to be deported, despite claim of female genital mutilation risk

Afusat Saliu, 31, and her two daughters, Basirat, three, and Rashidat, one, have been taken into custody by Home Office officials and transported from their home in Leeds to London for removal, the family’s lawyer told the Guardian.

Saliu, 31, a victim of female genital mutilation, has said that she fears her daughters will also be mutilated and spoken of her fear that, as Christians, they could be targeted by the Nigerian Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, which recently kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls.
