Nigerian gay man could be departed because Sweden doubts over his homosexuality


The man was forced to leave his homeland after his boyfriend died in a homophobic attack. But it appeared that he had no place to go. Kaodiumo fled and spent a few nights on the street, until a relative gave him money to buy a passport and a plane ticket to Sweden. The man did not speak Swedish so he had to use the interpreter’s help to explain at the migration board that he is gay. But the interpreter refused to help in it. As a result, the Swedish Migration Board and the Migration Court say they don’t believe Kaodimuo is gay, because he didn’t speak about his feelings and didn’t come to terms with being gay until he was 16. He has been denied leave to appeal, so the Migration Court’s ruling stands. But if he is to return to Nigeria, the teen is at danger of violence of even death.
