'Sends a strong message': Gang rapist deported 5 years after flyers disrupted bid to send him back home
LONDON, UK: A convicted rapist, who sexually assaulted a teen girl in 2007 along with his accomplices, has finally been sent back to his country, Somalia. Yaqub Ahmed was first deported from the UK in 2018, but passengers on the plane to Turkey from Heathrow, apparently unknown of his crime, halted that effort after he began screaming.
But 16 years after his arrest and five years after the first attempt, the criminal has been evicted from English soil. As per The Sun, Tory MP Nigel Mills expressed his happiness over the news and said, “It’s very good news. It was a sickening crime and he has no right to walk free in Britain. We need to send a strong message out that offenders like this have no place in this country. Unfortunately, he will not be the only case of its kind.”

‘I hope you all feel proud of yourselves’
This comes years after Ahmed’s victim, who was 16 when she was gang raped by the then-19-year-old attacker and other criminals, Adnan Mohamud, 19, Adnan Barud, 21, Ondogo Ahmed, 19, called out the flyers, who blocked his deportation. At the time, the now-34-year-old had served half his nine-year jail time.
Express.co.uk citing the woman reported, “It’s the bleeding heart brigade. They see someone in handcuffs and they are assuming it’s an injustice. Those people should have realized it takes a lot to get someone deported, maybe we shouldn’t interfere.”
She went on to say, “It was just people who wanted to do a good deed and feel proud of themselves,” before adding, “Well, I hope you all feel proud of yourselves. How could you defend a rapist? How could you intervene? He was in handcuffs, he was being taken out of the country… who are you people to interfere with justice?”
After the botched operation, the Home Office’s spokesperson said, “We are determined to protect the public by removing foreign national offenders who commit criminal offences.”
‘They did what they did’
Besides, in 2018, the victim also described her ordeal, which she endured in 2007, the Daily Mail reported. She reportedly said that the rapists had taken her to a flat claiming her friend was there but when she reached she found no one. She continued, “I got to the place and my friend wasn't there. They said she had gone to the shop and that she was coming back. They did what they did. They held me down. They took turns.”
“I kept trying to get at them. That's why they had me on my front, so I couldn't get to them easily and then one of them turned me over and I got him by the neck. I just felt this adrenaline. I remember just grabbing him, trying to get any part of him, trying to grab his face. I was trying to bite and claw,” the woman noted as she also asserted that the case trial left her devastated. She concluded, “They had four barristers and they were saying some awful things to me. The things they said to me messed me up for years.”
Meanwhile, Ahmed’s deportation has been applauded online as a user tweeted, “Good.” Another user wrote, “Hope all those that halted it the first time round are on the same flight!” The third user shared, “Revoke the citizenship of the passengers that stopped the flight.” “Those passengers who blocked his extradition should be made to pay the cost of keeping him here for longer,” the fourth user added.
