Former Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Kingsley Kuku has been arrested and deported from the United States (US) to Ghana for attempting to acquire Green Card status through illegal marriage.
Kuku, a former Special Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Niger Delta Affairs, was allegedly caught by security operatives, after he ochestrated an illegal marriage in the US.
Kuku, who was granted asylum in the US as a persecuted politician, allegedly decided to fast-track his Green Card process by arranging a fake marriage.
He arranged a marriage with the hope that it would nullify his asylum status and secured a Green Card status, so he would be able to travel freely to Nigeria.
Under the U.S Asylum Act, you cannot travel to the country where you fear persecution if you are granted asylum status.
According to reports, Kuku was said to have opted to be deported to Ghana instead of Nigeria, where he is facing corruption charges over his tenure as chairman of the Amnesty Programme.
