Can anyone identify this caterpillar for me please?

This caterpillar was found in a bag of chillis from our local food store.  The chillis originate in Gambia though we cannot be certain if "Chris the caterpillar" ate his way out of the fruits or if he was just caught up in the packaging.


Chris, pre-Chrisalis (ouch) is still munching his way through the chillis and we're hoping that he'll pupate into a beautiful foreign butterfly, but he could just be a foreign thug hoping to blight our counytryside and kill our native species!  He's just over an inch (2.5 cms) long.  Can anyone help please?
