The convicted former UBS trader Kweku Adoboli has been arrested and could be deported to Ghana in the next few days, he has said.

Adoboli was taken into custody after attending a regular reporting session at his local police station in Livingston.

He is in a holding centre in Glasgow and has been informed that he is to be taken to Harmondsworth immigration removal centre near Heathrow.

Adoboli fears the Home Office wants to put him on a private charter flight to Ghana.

He previously spent more than a month in Harmondsworth before being granted bail by an immigration judge and released to return to accommodation with friends in Scotland.

Adoboli was ordered to report regularly to his local police station as part of his bail conditions, and was arrested on Monday.

Adoboli, 38, lost his most recent legal challenge when he sought permission in the immigration court for a judicial review of the refusal of his latest application to remain in the UK.

This was not granted, but his legal team are understood to be preparing a new challenge to the court of appeal.

Speaking from the Glasgow holding centre, he said: “We want to keep fighting.”

Adoboli was jailed for seven years in 2012 after being found guilty of fraud that cost UBS $2.3bn (£1.8bn).

He was released after serving half his sentence.

He was born in Ghana but left when he was four and has lived in the UK since he was 12.
