Nigerian nightclub bouncer who twice dodged deportation is jailed for raping woman in her own home

A nightclub bouncer who was twice spared from being deported from Britain back to Nigeria has been jailed for raping a woman in her own home - months after judges allowed him to stay in the country.

Idreez Popoola, 34, should have been deported in 2006 after his temporary UK visa expired but he was allowed to continue living and working in Britain.
In December 2011 he was arrested and was told he would have to return to his native Nigeria but he successfully appealed the ruling.

Judges granted the nightclub bouncer temporary leave to stay in January 2012 because he had a wife and child.

Then, 11 months later on December 29 last year, he attacked and raped a woman in her own home.

He was jailed for seven years at Northampton Crown Court on October 18 after he was found guilty of rape following a four day trial last month.

Sentencing Popoola, Judge Lynn Tayton told him: 'It was a serious aggravating factor that the rape took place in the victim’s own home as this was an abuse of the trust placed in you by the victim and has undermined her feelings of safety in her own space.'

He was also ordered to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.

MUST READ: 9 Warning Signs You’re On the Wrong Track

“May you live every day of your life.”
―Jonathan Swift
If you feel like you’re on the wrong track with what matters most to you, here are nine warning signs to look for, and tips to get you back on track:

1.  All the decisions you’ve made someone else made for you.

There are people who live their entire lives on the default settings, never realizing they can customize everything.  Don’t be one of them.
You have to live your own life your own way.  That’s all there is to it.  Each of us has a unique fire in our heart for something that makes us feel alive.  It’s your duty to find it and keep it lit.  You’ve got to stop caring so much about what everyone else wants for you, and start actually living for yourself.
Find your love, your talents, your passions and embrace them.  Don’t hide behind other people’s decisions.  Don’t let others tell you what you want.  Design and experience YOUR life!  The life you create from doing something that moves you is far better than the life you get from sitting around wishing you were doing it.

Minister of Aviation Stella Oduah Acquires $1.6 Million Bulletproof Vehicles | See the Interior & Exterior of the Car

 
The Ministry of Aviation has confirmed reports that the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority purchased two bulletproof cars worth $ 1.6 Million - N 256,264,417 (256 Million Naira) – for the Nigerian Minister of Aviation,. Stella Oduah. Punch reports.
Sahara Reporters who was first to report the news claimed that it had documents in its possession that the transaction for the purchase of two black BMW 760 Li HSS cars began in June, but the request for the delivery and payment for the cars fast tracked between August 13 and 15 2013.
Joe Obi, the Special Assistant to the Minister of Aviation on Media said in a telephone conversation with the Punch reporter that the cars were purchased for security reasons.
“Yes, it is true that some security vehicles were procured for the use of the office of the honourable minister in response to the clear and imminent threat to her personal security and life following the bold steps she took to reposition the sector.
When she came on board as the minister, she inherited a lot of baggage in terms of the concession and lease agreements in the sector, which were clearly not in the interest of the government and people of Nigeria.
