Refugee activist says government is involved in deportation of back way boys

There is growing evidence that the Gambia government is involved in the mass deportation of back way boys living in Germany, according to a Germany-based Gambian refugee activist.

Nyima Jadama told What’s On-Gambia: “It’s no secret that our government accepted to take Gambians back for grants. I also understand there is a lot of money given to help returnees, but I don’t know how much.”

The refugee activist disclosed the German government plans to deport 2,500 Gambians whose asylum applications were rejected.

“When the German president, Frank-Walter Steinmeier visited The Gambia, he told the media that 2,500 Gambians would be deported,” she said.

Nyima added: “Barrow and his government really miscalculated. They rushed the agreement they have with the Germans. When Yahya Jammeh was there, they were not deporting like it is right now.

“Our boys are living in hardship here. Some of them are not working or going to school and that is why they are involved in drug peddling to take care of themselves and their families back home.”

Gambians are one of the top African nationalities among refugees seeking asylum in Germany. Majority of them arrived in Europe via the Mediterranean Sea.
