Nigerian RGU student faces deportation over voyeur video

An Aberdeen student is facing deportation after being charged with voyeurism for secretly filming intimate moments between himself and a woman.

Dokubo Bokolo, who is from Nigeria, completed his Master’s degree at Robert Gordon University (RGU) last year and had been preparing to study there for his PhD in the near future.

However, the 35-year-old’s academic plans have now been thrown into disarray after he admitted a string of charges at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

Bokolo, whose address was given on court papers as Merkland Road East in Aberdeen, admitted secretly filming a woman “doing a private act, with the intention of enabling himself or another to look at the image” last July.

He admitted another charge of intentionally causing the same woman “to look at a sexual image” by sending her a “sexually explicit recording” two weeks later.

And the accused pleaded guilty to a third charge of possessing “extreme pornographic images depicting a horse and an adult woman”.

Fiscal depute Alan Townsend requested yesterday that Sheriff Graham Buchanan make a recommendation for Bokolo to be deported.

Defence agent, Tony Burgess, argued against the move.

Mr Burgess said: “My client is anxious that such a recommendation is not made as it would scupper his chances of ever being able to come back to the UK for his PhD.

“He has been planning on going back to Nigeria to secure employment sponsorship in order to return to Aberdeen to undertake his PhD.”

Mr Burgess said Bokolo had made a “gross misjudgement” in committing the offences.

The lawyer added: “He is someone who is unlikely to commit further offences.”

Sheriff Buchanan said Bokolo had committed “a gross invasion of the privacy of the lady mentioned”.

He told the accused: “These are offences which would justify a custodial sentence, but I take into account that this was your first offence.

“However, I am of the view that the matter is of such seriousness that it would be appropriate to make the recommendation you be deported.”

Bokolo was also ordered to carry out 160 hours of community service in the next eight months.

He will be on the sex offenders register for the next five years.
