26yr old Nigerian, Olutosin Oduwole, Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison in the US for Terrorist Threat

 
A 26yr old Nigerian, Olutosin Oduwole, was on Wednesday December 21, sentenced to five years in prison in Madison County, for writing what prosecutors say was a note demanding money and threatening a Virginia Tech-like killing spree.

A jury convicted the former Southern Illinois University student in October of attempting to make a terrorist threat and unauthorized possession or storage of a weapon.

The judge sided with jurors in dismissing Oduwole's claim that he was an aspiring rapper, and that the threatening words were innocent lyrical musings. He was sentenced to five years on the threat charge and a year on the weapons charge to be served concurrently.
The threat note was found in Tosin's abandoned car by cops in July 2007, just a few months after the Virginia Tech massacre. The writing demanded payment to a PayPal account, threatening "if this account doesn't reach $50,000 in the next 7 days then a murderous rampage similar to the VT shooting will occur at another highly populated university. THIS IS NOT A JOKE!

The aspiring rapper insisted in court that he "did not mean to incite fear. That was never my intention. That is not my character." But he failed to convince the court the writing was innocent lyrics and other musings. Also, unfortunately for him, when they searched his on-campus dorm when he was arrested, cops found a loaded gun.

The bible was right, "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it" am sorry but loads of parents are failing in the raising kids dept, they run after wealth and not focus on what matters the most.....Am not in any position to judge but I think the judgement was fair

y not a life imprisonment for sb with such terrorist tendencies. they shdn't take chances o.

It's alws sad when innocent lives loose their lives to actions taken by terrorists; it's better to nip this in the bud.


Again. what is it with blacks and wanting to be rappers and entertainment freaks. who are the pple that will take ova from d generation of aging think thanks policy makers, leaders of today. it's food 4 thot.

every black tom, dick n harry these days want to sing/ own a record label. there are better causes than living a gangster lifestyle

orekelewa said...

How stupid can u be? Wot is a college student doing with a loaded gun? Gangstar rapper. To say they made a scape goat out of him is an understatement. Let's just say I have "seen" instances where people similar or worse to him got 1 to 2 yrs max and were out in 9mths with gud behavior. Not sure when blacks especially foreign blacks will learn they get the shorter end of the stick whenever they act up. Foolish. Mutallabs long lost twin. Ode oshi

*clears throat* So what was that idiotic gbenga saying about Igbos again?

What else can I say other than "I close my eyes in shame for this fool". He should know that Americans don't take lightly to terrorist threats. He's even lucky, they gave him five years,and he could probably spend less if he appeals later on. This is stupid. Instead of him focusing on his future, this is what he decided to do...so sad!

if his name was a northern name,they would say it is islam that has pushed him...amunibuni omo!

Alicia says... said...

anonymous 1:32 and others that seem to be "frustrated" this is the problem with Nigerians. I believe we also give ourselves a bad name. why is it that all the things you named happen on a daily basis in other countries as well, i.e. the United States. I mean Nigerians spend so much time airing their own dirty laundry. with every story about a Nigerian they attach "Nigerian woman, Nigerian man" DUH, from the fucking name we get that the person is a Nigerian, why restate it? all those things you named happen in every country, so why the fuss? every time someone is raped, there is a story, every time someone is murdered, there is a story. not saying its not news worthy, but dont take those stories and become insane enough to believe that these things are peculiar to Nigerians or happen to Nigerians more than any other group of people.
PEOPLE THINK and stop shouting Nigerian all over the damn place!

Linda you didnt add that Federal agents already had their eye on Oduwole before as a gun dealer told the police that Oduwole appeared overly anxious to get four semiautomatic weapons when he visited the gun store........

If they were working for the govt, it has affected their clearance. People just don't think.
Quite annoying.

I feel sorry for the Oduwole family from Ijebu land although some of them are well educated and doing well worldwide.

One Oduwole was gunned down in London by gangsters a few years ago. It was very sad because the police are yet to uncover his killer(s).

Is this one from Ijebu too. He does not deserve such a jail term although what he did was wrong. Was he well represented in court? He has tarnished his family name.

Did he finish his degree? Rapper my behind. He should know the fate of a black man in today's US society. Thats like someone screaming nonsense at the airport and telling TSA "they were only joking".

Anonymous said...

Gbenga just likes to stir up nonsense.

Igbos are known to be the biggest scammers. Hausas are known to be terrorists. But, when I read an article of the names that FBI has on their list. They were all yorubas. I've heard too many yorubas who are involve in 419 crap, so it's not only igbos.

All the people crying over this boy, oh, he's such a good boy, he has disgrace his family. Good, let the oduwole family see the son that they have raised and what he's been up to lately. This is not Nigeria, this is America there will be consequences for your action. I know a guy who has the same last name, very cocky guy. Not sure if they are related but I hope he's ashamed of himself now.

There are many young Nigerians, igbos and yorubas who are involve in some stupid things here. Why do Nigerians like to be in a state of denial. It's so stupid. There are so many disturbing things going on in the Nigerian community in some states here in the U.S, so, why act like Nigerians are always innocent.
