Nigerian councillor in UK resigns over possession of drugs

A Nigerian Labour councilor in the UK, known as  Ishmael Osamor, resigns from work on Tuesday.

29 years old Osamor who is a UK politician resigns after he had pleaded guilty to having £2,500 (N1,158,937) worth of drugs with intent to supply at Bestival in Dorset last year.

He said: “I sincerely regret, and apologise for not informing my family and colleagues of the pending court case and have stood down in recognition of this fact.”


Kate Osamor, his mum also a UK Labour member of parliament, faced calls to sack her son from his job as her communications officer after he was caught with drugs at a music festival
