that MILLIONAIRE white girl Laura Johnson was seduced by this nigerian http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/0...
Okubote, of Nigerian decent, was a product of the inner city and a gang culture based around violent rap music.
His friends went by names such as Desperado and Mad R and many were members of local gangs like the Catford Wildkatz and the Anti-Showers.
He under-achieved at school, and turned to a life of crime and by the age of 15 had been convicted of his first offence, robbery.
Despite his mother being a leader at her local Pentecostal church, Okubote went on to commit a long-line of offences, including theft, drug possession, burglary, assault and possession of an imitation fire arm.
In 2010, he received his first substantial jail sentence - two-and-a-half years for possession of crack cocaine and cannabis with intent to supply.
He was arrested and charged with kidnapping and torturing a local rival by throwing bleach in his face. The case was dropped before it came to court.
Miss Johnson became infatuated with him and according to Miss Fryett would meet in his car for trysts. She began drinking, taking drugs and entered into the nihistic lifestyles of disaffected youths.
The journey from her home in leafy Orpington, Kent, to inner city streets of Catford, south east London, may be just 10 miles but it might as well be another planet.
But she made it often. She would wait outside his house in her black Smart car - the same one used as a getaway car for her looting spree - as Okubote’s deeply devout Christian mother would not let girls inside the house.
Miss Johnson denied she had sex with Okubote but his sister Olayemi, 17, said the pair would go to her older sister’s flat to stay over because their mother disapproved.
“Laura would always be coming around here and waiting outside in her black car to drive Emmanuel around,’ she said.
“She was infatuated with him and he would play up to her. He had lots of girls and always charms them by talking to them nicely. She was definitely more in to him than he was to her.
“She knew about his criminal past as he is well known to people in Catford, but this seemed to make him more attractive to her.”
At 7pm on August 8, Johnson went to meet Okubote in Catford, armed with a handbag full of condoms.
Throughout the day, they had been exchanging flirtatious messages detailing how much she ‘missed’ him as well as crude sexual references.
She asked him not to get into trouble so she could see him and made a reference to how she “didn’t like working hard, unless it was for sex”.
He replied:“Don’t worry you will get it.”
But the night she might have envisioned turned out very differently.
Although it is likely she did not intend to take part in the riots, she willingly drove Okubote and his friends around as they pillaged televisions, alcohol and cigarettes from branches of Currys, Comet and a BP petrol station in South-East London.
At one point it was alleged in court they even robbed other looters at knifepoint.
She claimed she had been forced to take part, that Okubote suddenly changed from friendly to threatening forcing her to "drive" them around as they looted. She said he had terrified her with a video “If it was not for who she is this trial would not be on now,” she said.
“All the other boys were dealt with and all the other boys were already in prison.
Why is she still not in prison?
“It doesn’t matter if she is able to get out of it because of who she is or because she is telling the truth.
“What was she doing in this part of London anyway? What was she doing if she doesn’t have anything to do with it?”
