Michael Ematuwo, now 20, was convicted and detained for six years after he accidentally slit his friend’s throat, Jahmal Mason-Blair, a teen soccer starlet in 2009 during a fight in Hackney.

Currently detained at an immigration detention centre, in 2012 he was told that he faced deportation to Nigeria.

British tabloid, The Sun, however, reports that Ematuwo is fighting deportation, and has been launching series of costly appeals – funded by legal aid – to stay in the UK.

The paper said he has cost taxpayers more than £100,000 by fighting deportation for four years.

During Ematuwo’s murder trial the court heard that he was born in Nigeria and had been sent to live with an aunt by his father.

According to Daily Mail, he and Jahmal, were friends, and an older boy had taken Ematuwo’s bicycle, and he had gone with Jahmal to collect it but was attacked with a plank.

It said the court heard how Ematuwo took out the flick knife, and was waving it around to frighten the other youth but mistakenly stabbed Jahmal with it, and the latter died almost instantly.
