Windrush scandal, deportation and 2 year residence rule

My client is pension age and has high care needs and an adult social care package living at home, should be entitled to claim Attendance Allowance at the higher rate. However he was a victim of the Windrush scandal and was wrongly deported to Dominica in 2014. He returned to the UK on 22.08.2020 so has been back in the UK now for almost 1 year. DWP are saying he can’t claim AA as he hasn’t been in the UK for 2 years, however he has indefinite leave to remain (gets PC, HB) and was wrongly deported in 2014. Any advice on whether his entitlement to AA can be argued?
