|Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan|
As at the time of the deportation, GISTMASTER gathered, the Irish wife of the Nigerian was already pregnant with their daughter.
Justice Gerald Hogan said that the decision of the minister of Justice to deport the Nigerian amounted to forcible permanent separation between husband and the family.
The Nigerian arrived Ireland in 2009, his application for asylum and subsidiary protection was rejected in October 2010.He was arrested in January 2011 and deported in February 2011.
The man is likely to re-apply for Ireland so that he can be united with his wife and daughter who was born months after he was deported.
