    Default 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.

    Ah sure, don't they all look the same.

    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?
