Femi, 23, was suffering from cannabis-induced psychosis when he murdered academic Dr Ensink in Islington, north London, in December last year.

The 41-year old Ensink had gone out to post cards announcing the birth of his 10-day-old daughter Fleur on the day of the attack.

Femi has been sentenced and receiving mental health treatment in Berkshire.

Speaking Judge Nicholas Hilliard, QC said, ‘In these circumstances, if the time came, if he were close to being released, Broadmoor hospital would inform the Home Office immigration enforcement section and they would consider whether he should be deported.”

The convict had become psychotic from smoking cannabis and believed voices telling him he was a ‘Messiah’.

In May 2015, he was arrested for wielding a knife in public and punching and biting a police officer. And while he was on conditional bail, he came to Nigeria to treat the illness and later returned to the UK.
