A Nigerian Labour councillor caught with a large amount of drugs at a music festival has resigned as a U.K councillor, having already left his cabinet post.

Ishmael Osamor, 29, had pleaded guilty to having £2,500-worth of drugs, at last year’s Bestival event in Dorset.

The Haringey councillor and son of a Labour MP apologised for the “unwanted attention” his case had brought. Osamor was sentenced to a two-year community order and 20 days rehabilitation, last Friday.

The son of Shadow International Development Secretary, Kate Osamor, was caught with ecstasy, cocaine, ketamine and cannabis at the festival in August 2017, nine months before he was elected as a councillor
