Chukwu v. Attorney Gen. of the US, 05-4068

Nigerian citizen's petition for review of a denial of asylum and related relief is granted and the matter remanded where an IJ erred in making an adverse credibility finding as he failed to take into account record evidence that explained many of the discrepancies on which the adverse finding was based, and the IJ did not determine whether it was reasonable to expect petitioner to produce corroboration of the facts which the IJ found should have been corroborated.
