The Home Office began efforts in 2016 to deport him and he made human rights claims which a judge rejected.
The criminal delayed the process by appealing and making two judicial review applications which were eventually rejected.
But on January 29, 2019, less than 24 hours before he was due to be kicked out, he claimed he was bisexual and could not live openly in Nigeria.
The Home Office said he had made it up and said he had plenty of chances to mention it earlier.
Tory MP Nigel Mills said: “It’s the most ridiculous case I have ever heard.
“Every convicted criminal will be trying this now.”
He said he supports Home Secretary Priti Patel’s plans to change the system.
The man arrived as a student in 2006.

He said his sexuality meant he suffered adverse treatment at university and then in prison.
He had only felt able to disclose his sexual orientation when he was in detention after discussions with detainees and a welfare officer.
The Home Office said: “Later this year the Government will legislate to fix the broken asylum system to make it firm and fair.”
