Prisoner accused of intimidating jail inmates to convert to Islam
by John Aston
A Muslim jailed for his involvement in the killing of a woman at a christening party has been accused of bullying and intimidating jail inmates to convert to Islam, it was revealed today.
The accusations, which also include gang activity in prison and possessing a home-made weapon, came to light as the High Court in London rejected Jude Odigie's challenge to his transfer from a private prison to a high security jail.
Odigie, 24, was a teenager when he was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced at the Old Bailey in February 2007 to detention "for public protection" and ordered to serve a minimum period of seven years, three months, eight days.
