Dele Ailemen lived in Los Angeles for over 10 years -- remaining here without a visa when the political situation in Nigeria made it dangerous for him to return there. He has been in INS detention since February 2005, after the Hawthorne Police ran a "routine check" on him -- essentially on the basis of racial profiling.
Before coming to the United States, Dele Ailemen worked as a radio and television journalist and commentator in Nigeria, and was actively involved in the labor movement even as a teen. During the better part of the ‘80s, Dele served as the chairman of the Bendel (now Edo) State Council of the Nigerian Union of Journalists. Dele is credited by colleagues as one of the “national architects of the progressive coalition within the Union of Journalists in the face of threats from successive military dictatorships in Nigeria.” Punch, December 12, 1985. (Punch is a national and daily newspaper in Nigeria.) Dele was a leader in investigating the assassination of Dele Giwa, publisher of a prominent news magazine in Nigeria. As a result of this investigation, one of the principal suspects became General Ibrahim Babangida, former President of Nigeria and a possible candidate for the upcoming 2007 presidential election in Nigeria. As a result of Dele’s journalistic and political
activities and views, he has received threats from forces in Nigeria that have the power to harm or kill him should he return home.
