The convicted former UBS trader Kweku Adoboli was welcomed on arrival in Ghana by his family after he was deported from the United Kingdom on Wednesday.

According to a tweet by #KeepKweku, the campaign to prevent his deportation, he was guarded by five United Kingdom Marshals and greeted by his family on his safe arrival at the Kotoko International Airport.

However, the campaign has vowed not to give up the fight to prevent reverse his deportation.

Adoboli was deported on a flight from Heathrow airport on Wednesday afternoon after a lengthy legal battle with the British government to stay in the country despite his fraud conviction.

Adoboli was born in Ghana but left when he turned four and has lived in the UK since he was 12. The former trader at the Swiss bank UBS was sentenced to seven years in prison in fraud charges.

His unauthorised trading cost the bank £1.3bn, with an even greater hit to its share values, but he insists he never personally benefited financially from his crime. Mr Adoboli was released in 2014 after serving half his sentence and has been fighting deportation ever since.
