Nigerian drug lord serving 27 years sentence in UK flouts prison rules to show off his £3,000 Rolex and designer shirt

A Nigerian drug lord who is serving 27 years behind bars has flouted prison rules by flaunting his £3,000 gold Rolex watch and luxury designer shirts that he wears in prison. Babs Arogundade, 29, made mockery of the ban on bling by wearing a Datejust Rolex, a golden medallion and a silk shirt by designer Versace.

He took the pictures from an illicit camera phone and a friend posted them on Instagram with the caption 'free BP' - an allusion to the gangster's nickname.   
A source told the Sunday People 'The pictures show how much respect he has for the prison system - none. He's laughing at the authorities.'  The source also speculated that Arogundade was running the prison and that he was living the high life behind bars.
A Prison Service spokesman said: 'We are investigating these images. Any prisoner found to have breached our rules will be punished and may be referred to the police for further investigation.'
Before he was jailed the drug baron owned a Bentley, lived a life of luxury and regularly splashed out thousands of pounds on champagne and expensive jewellery including diamond-encrusted Rolex watches.
Arogundade, of St John's Wood, North London, was convicted last year of conspiracy to supply drugs and possession of firearms.  He was caught when police found an arsenal of guns he had stashed in a woman's car including four shotguns, a loaded Smith and Wesson handgun and a Winchester rifle when they raided the vehicle during a surveillance operation focusing on Arogundade's criminal lifestyle. 
Also in the car they found a package containing a kilo of 74 per cent pure cocaine, which is said to have a street value of £200,000.

Weighing scales, plastic bags containing 1.22kg of crack cocaine and cutting agent were later found at an associate of Arogundade's address in Wembley.
