Who Is Mark Akintola? Wife Wants To Know Jailed Husband’s Real Name

by | 28th, December 2010

WHO is Mark Akintola. The man who has called himself Mark Akintola – the man who’s been married for 20 years and has a daughter now aged 17 – is not Mark Akintola.

We know that Mark Akintola, a British citizen, has been living in the United States since 1979. This is not him. This is a man stood in the dock at Southwark Crown Court being jailed for two years for a fraud that came to light when he went to renew his passport.

As he is taken down from the dock, his wife screams:

Your daughter’s got a right to know who you are! ‘You are damn out of order.”

Judge Nicholas Loraine-Smith tells him:

“About the one thing I am certain of in this case is that you are not Mark Akintola, but that is the name I am going to sentence you under.”

All very interesting stuff. And it will not end there. When Not Mr Akintola emerges from jail he is likely to be deported to Nigeria, where he is believed to be from.

Should the real Akintola ever return to the UK, you can only fear for his sanity as the boarder guards get to work…
