Lee Rigby’s killer has converted inmates to Islam, court told

A Muslim extremist jailed for life after being convicted of the murder of soldier Lee Rigby is looked up to by fellow prisoners, a high court judge has been told.

Michael Adebolajo was “charismatic”, and intelligence suggested that he had helped convert other inmates to Islam, Mr Justice Langstaff heard.

Detail of the influence Adebolajo wielded in jail has emerged after he took legal action against the Ministry of Justice.

Adebolajo claims that he was injured by prison officers during an incident in a cell and wants compensation.
