YouTuber Deji Olatunji Vows To Fight Judge's Decision To Destroy His Dog Tank Following Attack

YouTuber Deji Olatunji Vows To Fight Judge's Decision To Destroy His Dog Tank Following Attack

YouTuber Deji Olatunji has urged his fans to support him as he appeals against the decision to destroy his German Shepherd after it attacked a woman.

Oladeji Olatunji, who vlogs under the name Deji, appeared in Cambridge Crown Court earlier this month alongside his mum Olayinka, where they pleaded guilty to being in charge of a dog dangerously out of control.

The court heard that on 23 July 2018 the dog - named Tank - had bitten an elderly neighbour who had gone to collect a parcel from Olatunji's house.

The dog also bit her son-in-law, who didn't sustain any serious injuries, the Cambridgeshire Live reports.

Judge David Farrell QC ordered the YouTuber, who is the younger brother of KSI, to pay a fine £2,500, while his mum was ordered to hand over £8,000 in compensation to the victim, as well as given a 12-month community order and told to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work.

Deji was forced to pay £5,845 and Olayinka was told to give £2,082.50 to cover the kennel costs to keep Tank 'pending destruction'.

But now, Deji has vowed to fight the decision to have the dog put to sleep, telling his millions of followers: "I'm going to be appealing to save Tank's life and I want you to just help me.

"I want you to tell your friends, your family, everyone, anyone you know.

Before going on to say he was 'very apologetic for the incident'.

Speaking during the court appearance on 17 December, Judge Farrell said: "The events that gave rise to the charges occurred outside your home involving your Alsatian dog who was 13 months old at the time.

"He came out your home and attacked your neighbour who was led into your driveway area to pick up a parcel.

"Jennifer had therefore been invited in and as she was about to leave, the automatic gates closed, trapping her in the driveway area while your dog, Tank, escaped and then viciously attacked her.

"It's clear from the CCTV that was operating in the area from your premises that the dog was completely out of control and you, Olayinka, were totally unable to exercise any control over him."
