A Nigerian, Olaoluwa Ibrahim has been sentenced to eight and a half years for raping a woman in the UK.
The 38 year old man was said to have approached the woman at Maida Vale as she got off a bus a night. When she refused his advances, he forcefully dragged her into a drive way and raped her.
He was said to have fled the scene after stealing her phone.
Daily Post reports that the incident happened a year ago but in a renewed trial. Ibrahim pleaded guilty to rape and theft.
It was reported that he had earlier denied the charges until DNA linked him to the crime. The judge after sentencing him to eight and a half years in prison also said he will be immediately deported back to Nigeria after the completion of his jail term.
Detective Adam Knott said Ibrahim deserved the sentencing as he did not show any remorse.
“I would like to reassure the public that attacks of this nature are extremely rare. When they do occur, we do everything we can to bring the offenders to justice.
“Ibrahim has shown no remorse or honesty from the point of arrest and his deception continued throughout the trial, putting the victim through the trauma of having to recount her ordeal in court. I hope it is of some comfort to her to know he will now spend a considerable amount of time in prison before being deported.
“He is a genuinely dangerous offender and I am pleased he has been removed from public life.”
