The former UBS trader Kweku Adoboli has safely arrived in Ghana after he was deported from the United Kingdom on Wednesday.
Adoboli, who was convicted of fraud after arriving in Ghana on Thursday was welcomed by his family in Accra.
At his family house, Adoboli was welcomed with beer and some local dish (akple and fetridetsi.).
Adoboli, aged 38 and who has lived in the UK for 26 years, was said to be in a distressed state before he left
Adoboli's local MP, Hannah Bardell in an interview with BBC expressed his disappointment over Adoboli’s deportation.
"No one is saying he hasn't committed a crime, but he has been rehabilitated and is being punished twice."
Nick Hopewell-Smith, one of the lawyers acting on behalf of Adoboli also said: "We are deeply upset about the manner in which he was whisked away, because there was no chance to say goodbye.
"He added that Adoboli’s friends and supporters will keep on the fight to bring back to the UK.”
Adoboli was sentenced to seven-years for £1.4bn fraud but he served only four years as he was released in 2015.
He was born in Ghana but has lived in the UK when he was 12 years-old.
He is leaving behind his partner Alice, with whom he had been living in Livingston, West Lothian.
