Nigerian man charged with sitting driving tests for BOTH men and women in Irelands Nigerian community

The Sunday Times today carries a story concerning a Nigerian man from Lagos using a gender neutral name sitting driving tests for both women and men from the Nigerian community in Ireland.

John Burns of the ST tweeted about it lastnight.

Sunday Times News: A Nigerian man has been convicted of sitting driving tests for other men... and for women!
There is not a link to the story but the gist of it is, a man from Lagos is sitting driving tests for Nigerian men and women. The cost per test ranges from 75 to 400 euro, handy little number.

He was found guilty at the Kilkenny circuit court last month where it emerged he was guilty of the same thing back in 2010 in Dundalk. Then he got a four year ban and 200 hours community service instead of five months in jail.

When asked for his driving license by the Gardai it had his own photograph with a different name.

First time around, Judge said about the scam.
Ill concieved and wrong.
but said
he was not hurting anyone
And what if one of those he passed their test for who should not be driving unaccompanied without an experienced driver, then knocked down and killed an innocent toddler, not hurting anyone?

Last month he was handed down a suspended sentence.

Whether it is some Africans involved in arranging sham marriages, dealing meth, sitting multiple car tests, or renting out taxis to people who do not have the correct paper work, should deportation orders be considered?

EDIT: My OP would appear loaded at the Nigerian/African community. On my second point about deportation orders, that should be also debated regarding Asians/South Americans over staying student visas, working illegally, found out multiple times, not attending colleges courses at all but working full time. Infact any immigrant group caught more than once for the same offence.

Good stuff. I was worried for a moment you'd want to discuss a case in isolation, but no, there at the end you made it clear you just want to have another stupid racebaiting thread. Nice work.

I'd like the case discussed and the possible consideration debated about deportation orders for immigrants that are found guilty of the same offence more than once. This individual reported in the Sunday Times has a history with this type of thing. Maybe two/three strikes and you're out.

If you wanted that you wouldn't have tried to associate this individual's actions with the behaviour of a continent of people.

How is the tester going to know his Abegbe from his Abassi? Is gender marked on the application form? If not, maybe it should be.

Is this the theory test or the actual driving test, ie. sitting in the same car as an instructor who then decides if you fail or pass?

Why sync?
How many Irish people have been caught doing this type of thing?
Would you feel better about yourself if it was an Irish person?

Should of included eastern europeans but not sure the EU would allow Ireland to consider deprotation. I also could of included Asians/South Americans overstaying on student visas, signing up to bogus colleges, working full time rather than studying any of the time.

My question on deportation might seem loaded towards one community, I should of posted about all communities living in Ireland.

You know now that you can't question the actions of Nigerians.
Fine, upstanding members of our society.

Yeah, it's great that posters are finally providing compelling evidence to back what everybody already knew to be the truth about the "new irish".

He's taking the pi55 and should be deported, after CAB have trawled through his affairs: bank accounts, welfare claims, housing-the lot.

Too many immigrants see this country as a soft touch. They have no respect for the country-why should they, and they see it as prey. I think these days Irish people are getting very tired of being made fools of by foreigners in their own country.

I don't think the judge who said he wasn't doing any harm showed any respect to the country either. People, Irish people, could have been killed as a consequence of his scam. By the way, I think it speaks volumes for the mentality of Nigerians here that he had customers who had no qualms about cheating, scamming the system and endangering lives along the way. Idiotic carry on. All his customers should be deported too.

isn't this kinda the sane thing as the penalty points scandal, but in reverse, sort of,

Can we deport all the corrupt Gardai too?

They'd all fit in very well in some tin pot African "republic",

Below is a quote from an Indo article recently and yes it just so happens to be an Africa related.
A remarkable insight into the view of Ireland as a destination for foreign criminals was discovered by gardai in Dublin last year after they had arrested three Nigerian nationals, members of an organised mobile phone theft and drug smuggling organisation. The gardai checked the phones of the three arrested and on one, they found a text that had been sent to an associate back in Nigeria. It read: "Come to Ireland. It is a virgin country. There is plenty of money to be made."

How could you have a credible argument in favour of deporting members of the Gardai? They are indigneous Irish, so obviously not.

Corrupt Gardai could escort the deportees on the same one way trip!
