Meet the convicted Nigerian cocaine trafficker who is flouting the law by driving a taxi round Dublin without a PSV licence.

Efforts to deport Yemi Moshood Olatunde from Ireland to Italy, where he faces a 22-year sentence for cocaine trafficking, failed last September.

Now Olatunde (49), is giving the finger to authorities here by brazenly driving a taxi around the city even though his PSV licence was revoked in 2012.

And, because he is not the holder of a PSV licence, the Sunday World understands this means that passengers in his taxi are effectively uninsured.

An angry Olatunde vented his fury after spotting us monitoring his movements in his 07-registered taxi on Thursday by flying into a foul-mouthed tirade at our reporters.

“F**k your mothers, f**k your mothers, f**k your mothers, f**k all you bastards,” he ranted out the side window of his taxi, while giving us the finger, after pulling up alongside our team’s vehicle in Tallaght.
