Nigerian woman 19, Married to a British man tries to commit suicide days before she was due to be deported from the UK

May Brown is a 19-year-old college student who fled to Britain from Nigeria three years ago after witnessing her father's murder and being subjected to sexual abuse. She settled in Weymouth, Dorset, where she met her husband, Michael Brown, 12 months ago and the couple married last December.

Her husband Mr Brown, 34, said UK Border Agency officials believe their marriage to be a 'sham' with no
'emotional attachment'.

So when May Brown was told she would be flown back to Nigeria tomorrow she was so distressed at the prospect of returning to her home country that she took an overdose of medication just days before she was due to be sent back to Nigeria but luckily for her she was she was found by her mother-in-law Helen-Claire Brown who found her collapsed on the bathroom  floor on Monday morning with a suicide note saying she "couldn't live without him."

May wrote: 'I am deeply sorry that I had to go this way, without even saying goodbye.
'The UK immigration has finally driven me insane. They've pushed me too far this time and I can't take the pain any more.
'I don't want a life or a future you won't be part of. I love you so much, more than life itself and can't endure the agony of not being with you.
'Please forgive me for ending it this way. It's better to die with my dignity than be subjected to torture and undignified death back in Nigeria.'
Before she took the overdose, May had said she feared her abusers would kill her if she returned to the African country because she witnessed her father's death.

'I have found peace with Michael, he gave me a reason to live. I have got a family here and we don't claim any benefits.She said: 'If they send me back to Nigeria they are signing my death warrant, they will cut my life short because I will be killed.
'Michael works and I am studying to become a barrister, we have not harmed anybody.'
