A convicted rapist from Africa threw a fit as he was being deported from the US — telling federal agents that he “would rather die than go back to Togo.”
“I am going to make a commotion at the terminal, so the marshals can shoot me.”
He was being escorted through the top floor of an airport garage when the incident occurred last month.
Wearing full restraints, Ameyapoh reportedly ran toward the railings and began tussling with the agents.
As a result, the Maryland sex offender was charged with a federal count of “hampering departure from the United States.”
Ameyapoh’s deportation has been temporarily called off and he was ordered detained until further proceedings for the newly filed case.
