A convicted drug kingpin cannot be deported after immigration officials ruled he is a good father who once took his family to a Peppa Pig theme park.
Princewill Oluoha, 37, from Nigeria, was sentenced to seven years for an attempted plot to smuggle £1m of cocaine to Britain in 2010.
Although the Home Office are desperately trying to deport him, he has been allowed to remain in the UK because he claims he plays a key role in the life of his British daughter.
Oluoha, who came to Britain in 2007, has two children and has been pictured enjoying himself with his family at Peppa Pig World, an amusement park in the New Forest based on the children’s cartoon.
At hearing in April last year, a Home Office bid to return Oluoha to Nigeria failed after a judge heard evidence from his partner about how he helps bring up his daughter.
