Emdee Tamiyu

Controversial UK-based Nigerian Youtuber, Emdee Tiamiyu, who revealed to the British authorities that fellow Nigerians were using the UK students’ visa to escape hard life in Nigeria has reportedly been deported to Nigeria.

News of the deportation of Emdee Tiamiyu was flashing on Nigerian social media on Tuesday morning with many rejoicing over the fate of the controversial YouTuber. reports that Emdee Tiamiyu had in an interview with the BBC in 2023 alleged that many Nigerians seeking the UK visa were only using it as an avenue to escape the hardship in the country.

“The student route is more like an answered prayer. It is a big bracket that’s able to take a lot of people, the ordinary people”.

“We’re beginning to see that a lot of people just hide behind the studentship. So the student thing is not real, it’s not like they need the degrees,” he added.

Not long after his controversial interview the UK authorities tightened immigration rules into the UK and forbade all but PhD students from bringing their families to the UK.

Emdee Tiamiyu had defended his interview saying he had no regrets.

He, however, ran into trouble not long after as it was revealed that he applied for asylum in the UK and was given £160,000. However, he then went to Nigeria and built a house in Ogun State drawing allegations of misdemanour. He was arrested last March and has now reportedly been deported.

Nigerians were celebrating the reports of the deportation of Emdee Tiamiyu on Tuesday morning. gathered some of the comments:
