During an interview with BBC, Emdee Tiamiyu claimed that Nigerians seeking migration to the UK employ the strategy of using education as a deceptive tactic to secure entry into the country.

He said, “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 is not like they need the degrees. They need the degree as an access road to come into the country, so a lot of this people their priorities shifted real fast.”

The Nigerian UK-based Youtuber noted that while the majority of people genuinely have the intention to study, there is a growing minority who do not share the same commitment.

Emdee Tiamiyu’s comments triggered outrage among Nigerians who labeled him as ‘Judas Iscariout’, accusing him of betraying and selling his country to the UK government.
