ICE Dallas deports Nigerian who had his US citizenship revoked after sexually abusing a 7-year-old before he was naturalized
DALLAS — A Nigerian man was deported Thursday after his U.S. citizenship was revoked in April following his conviction for indecency with a 7-year-old girl, a felony offense which he committed before he was naturalized.

Deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed Emmanuel Olugbenga Omopariola, 61, to Nigeria May 24. He had been in ICE custody in the Dallas area since his arrest on April 18, 2018, when he surrendered himself at the ERO Dallas Field Office. He departed Dallas May 23 under ICE escort to Nigeria via JFK International Airport in New York City. He arrived in Ikeja, Nigeria, about 2:20 p.m. local time (9:20 a.m. CDT).

“This deportation ends this U.S. chapter for Omopariola who sabotaged his own future and opportunities through his heinous crimes against a child, and his lies on his naturalization application and in interviews,” said Simona L. Flores, field office director of ERO Dallas. “By effecting such removals, ICE helps improve public safety and enforces U.S. immigration law.”
Omopariola originally legally entered the United States on March 25, 1983 at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on a nonimmigrant student visa.

According to the April 11, 2018, Consent Judgment by the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas, Omopariola was naturalized as a U.S. citizen July 1, 2004. During his naturalization proceedings, Omopariola withheld that he unlawfully engaged in sexual contact with a 7-year-old girl in 2002. This crime, even though he had not yet been arrested or convicted, “…rendered him unable to demonstrate the requisite good moral character for naturalization and, thus, ineligible for naturalization when he took the oath of allegiance…He therefore illegally procured his naturalization.”

After he was naturalized, Omopariola pleaded guilty in Texas state court in 2015 to indecency with a child — sexual contact, a second-degree felony. He was ordered to five years of community supervision and placed on the sex offender registry. He had been residing in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Omopariola was one of five child sex abusers that the Justice Department sought to denaturalize who were highlighted in a Nov. 21, 2017, news release.


  1. I know of a woman right now who was issued papers for voluntary deportation (not sure if I’m wording it the right way because I’m not familiar with the laws and terminology). However she told me that she came here in someone else’s name and because she didn’t mention that when the papers were being filed …..she was denied a green card and is now facing deportation. They said she withheld information and it was considered a fraud against the Government. Maybe someone here is more informed and educated about the immigration process and can explain it better that’s what she told me. Altho yuh know ppl naw talk di truth.

    As per this case ….. I guess on the application for naturalization, they ask if you have ever been arrested or convicted of a crime and actually he wasn’t because he was neither arrested nor convicted at that time … he really didn’t lie. I guess they’re just trying to present the case from a moral stand point. He turned himself in. At least his conscience was eating at him. Dem fi ring him balls in a clockwise motion and slowly chip away at his dick. (God forgive me).

  2. He’s a citizen so they should deal with it as they would any other American citizen. Jail him to the maximum extent of the law… But the fact that he didn’t disclose it should have no effect on his citizenship..If I read right, he wasn’t convicted until after he got the citizenship. He committed the crime before that but I guess her parents found out after. He had nothing to disclose then… As for him molesting the little girl, he should
    rot in prison….
