From today's Metro newspaper " Two illegal immigrants who scammed thousands of pounds from British soldiers in Iraq were jailed for four years yesterday. The pair plundered the bank accounts of Army personnel serving overseas, leaving their families at home unable to buy food or pay bills. Nigerian Omowale Adepoju, 21, used a false identity to return to Britain despite three removal orders while his half-brother, Abiodun, 23, opened accounts in soldiers' names. They bought stolen cheque books from another illegal immigrant, Abdul Malik, who allegedly used a false name to get a job at the BFPO, which let him handle diplomatic bags at heathrow Airport. The court heard that Malik went on the run after being freed on bail .........the value of the forged cheques was more than £120,000 although not all were cashed successfully. Judge Barrington Black described the case as 'reprehensible beyond comprehension'.
