Keep 'em coming

The knifing to death of Police Constable Jon Henry has, understandably attracted much media attention in the UK. Given the racial profile for knife murderers in the UK (and other countries), it's no surprise to find that the accused, Ikechukwu Tennyson Obih arrived illegally in the UK from Nigeria in 2000, but, despite some 'indications of criminal intent' was nonetheless granted indefinite leave to remain.

Smart decision guys.

Obih (seen pictured) was handcuffed to a prison guard and flanked by three policemen. The 27-year-old was also charged with the attempted murders of window cleaners Steven Chamberlain and David Knight. He faces a fourth charge - related to a separate incident on Monday - of armed burglary.

Given that Nigeria itself is a Mad Max bedlam of criminality, it's not surprising that so many of the 'asylum seekers' arriving here join the criminal fraternity. Speaking of which, what has happened to our own 'student' Olukunle Elunkanlo? This splendid chap was deported from Ireland in 2005 but after a long and expensive (for the taxpayer) campaign, was brought back to sit his Leaving Cert (all at taxpayers' expense, which explains why we spend about €400 million a year on such things).

In fairness Elunkanlo - who looks closer to 40 than 20 (see pic below) did all the right things for gaining residency. This included the most important one - getting a local girl up the pole. He used the resultant child to raise another lawsuit (again, at our expense) to gain the right to stay.

But Olukunle, just like Obih, demonstrated 'criminal tendencies' at an early stage. This manifested itself by being with another Nigerian 'asylum seeker' who was trying to rob an ATM machine at the time. But it appears that poor old Olukunle - he didn't know what was going on! Aaagh - the poor fellow. Naturally enough, he was never charged and all forgotten in good spirits.

Presumably though, it'll be remembered if he does an Ikechukwu Tennyson Obih at some stage in the future.

I think this guy is still in Ireland. Itd have been all over the media if he'd been fucked out - as he should have from day 1.
