Part Time Nigerian Pastor in UK Caught in Britain's Biggest Ever Education Fraud

A Nigerian-born accountant at a chain of academies is at the centre of a fraud investigation after £4million of school funds ended up in his personal accounts.

Samuel Kayode, pictured above, is said to have spent much of the cash on an extravagant lifestyle and buying a string of properties.

DailyMail in a fresh report yesterday says the 57-year-old part-time pastor was told by the High Court to pay £4.1million back more than a year ago. He has failed to do so, and it is feared most of the cash has been transferred to Nigeria. The case, kept secret for almost two years, is believed to be Britain’s biggest ever education fraud.

The vast sum of money is missing from the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation Trust in South London.
