Former UBS trader Kweku Adoboli, who was convicted for causing a $2.3 billion loss at the bank, arrived in Ghana – the place of his birth – after losing a legal fight to stay in Britain.
Bloomberg News reports the 38-year-old landed in Accra on a flight from Nairobi Thursday morning, Edith Arhin, immigration officer in charge at Kotoka International Airport, said in an interview. She declined to comment on where Adoboli is now. Adoboli was sent back to Ghana after he was detained by the U.K. Monday when reporting to police in Scotland.
The move by the U.K. Home Office more than likely ends a saga that began more than seven years ago when Adoboli, on his way to racking up the biggest unauthorized trading loss in British history, warned Facebook friends with a post: “need a miracle.” The flight left on another dramatic day as U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May unveiled her plan for the country’s exit from the European Union.
