Police are aware that Mr Agnide entered the UK on a business visa in December 2009 and is potentially staying in this country illegally.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Sapphire Unit believe that Mr. Agnide may be in south London. They have information to suggest that he could be working in the Elephant and Castle area of Southwark under a different name.

Detective Constable James Gerrard from Sapphire in Southwark said: “This man has multiple identities and we believe he may be living and working in the Elephant and Castle area. We would like to urge this man to contact us immediately so that we can speak to him about this allegation. If you think you recognise his photograph or know who and where this man is, we would like to hear from you.”
