So marginalized & oppressed… At least seven from my university joined ISIS, says captured fighter

An Islamic State fighter held in Syria has told the BBC he was one of at least seven students and ex-students from University of Westminster to join IS.

Zakariyya Elogbani abandoned a degree in business management which he was taking at the university in 2014.

Another student had been studying while on a terror protection order which was made less restrictive by a judge, a BBC investigation has found.

University of Westminster says it takes its safeguarding duty “very seriously”.
