Pamela Izevbekhai loses appeal to stay in Ireland

Mother of three Pamela Izevbekhai has lost her Supreme Court fight to stay in Ireland.

Ms Izevbekhai claims her daughters - nine-year-old Naomi and seven-year-old Jemima - are at risk of female genital mutilation if returned to Nigeria.

The court has found by a four-to-one majority that the Minister for Justice has no discretion to further review her deportation following an EU directive.

Pamela Izevbekhai's solicitor Matthew Ezeani said Ms Izevbekhai would still have another day in court - at the European Court of Human Rights.
