Lee Rigby killer wants to serve rest of his sentence in Nigerian jail.


Despite being born in Britain, one of Lee Rigby’s killers is reportedly making a bid to serve the rest of his sentence in a Nigerian jail with a VIP wing.

37-year-old Michael Adebowale, who is serving a 45 year jail term for the 2013 murder, was born in Britain but has Nigerian parents. He is currently behind bars in HMP Wakefield, but he is believed to be seeking a prisoner-swap deal.

The Sun reports that he plans to seek a transfer to Lagos’ Kirikiri jail where then-Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, agreed to pay for a new £700,000 wing in 2014. .
.
A source told the newspaper: “Michael hates Wakefield. It’s stuffed full of lags who see him as a top target.  He thinks he can spend the rest of his sentence in Africa.”

The Sun also reported that Adebowale has written to immigration experts asking for advice. But it is thought that his bid would fail because he was not born in Nigeria.

He and his friend, Michael Adebolajo hacked Mr Rigby, 25, to death by his barracks in Woolwich, south-east London, in 2013.
