The Home Office has been ordered to bring a woman and her son back to the UK after they were deported.
In an unusual move judges told the department to organise the return of the mother and the five-year-old British-born boy from her native Nigeria.
They found that in ordering the pair’s removal from the UK in January, the Home Office “failed to have regard to (the child’s) best interests as a primary consideration”.
After agreeing to a judicial review of the case, the judges ordered the Home Secretary to “take all reasonable steps” to ensure the mother and her child’s return.

This just happened on Instagram between now happily married lovebirds Mr Adeniyi Johnson ad his pretty wife, Mrs Olutoyin Aimakhu Johnson.

In his first public comment on the March 28 and April elections, the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, has disclosed that he was happy when the March 28 presidential poll produced a clear winner.
According to him, a presidential run-off would have led to a crisis in the country as there was no way INEC could have successfully conducted a run-off election within seven days as provided for in both the 1999 Constitution and the Electoral Act.
