The latest arrest of a Nigerian national marks the eighth illegal alien charged with a sex crime since July 25.
Oluwakayode Adebusuyi, a 26-year-old man from Nigeria, allegedly raped an intoxicated woman in her car, according to ABC 7 News. Federal Immigration authorities confirmed that Adebusuyi is an illegal alien. He lives in Fairfax, Virginia, and is currently being held in detention on $250,000 bond.
“On Sept. 1, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center on unlawfully present Nigerian national Oluwakayode Adewole Adebusuyi. Adebusuyi was arrested Aug. 28 on local charges, including rape,” a statement from ICE read.
Adebusuyi has had several interactions with the justice system.
He was charged with a second degree assault, a fourth degree sex offense, and false imprisonment in August 2018, according to arrest documents obtained by ABC 7. However, prosecutors dropped the charges for unknown reasons. Adebusuyi has since worked as a ride-share driver.
News of the arrest marks the latest rape or sexual charge by an illegal alien in Montgomery County since County Executive Marc Elrich signed a “sanctuary” order in July that largely forbids local authorities from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. The “Promoting Community Trust Executive Order,” prohibits county police officers from asking about a suspect’s immigration status and bars police from working with ICE.
