Councillor Of Nigerian Origin In The UK Resigns Over Possession Of Drugs

A Labour councillor in UK of Nigerian origin caught with a large amount of drugs at a music festival has resigned as a councillor, having already left his cabinet post.

Ishmael Osamor, 29, had pleaded guilty to having £2,500-worth of drugs, at last year's Bestival event in Dorset.

The Haringey councillor and son of a Labour MP apologised for the "unwanted attention" his case had brought.

Osamor was sentenced to a two-year community order and 20 days rehabilitation, last Friday.
