34-year-old Nigerian engineer, Kufre Uwem has been sentenced to seven years in prison over the rape of a teenager in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Uwem detained the woman against her will in his flat and then removed her clothing and raped her.

He was also convicted of intent to rape a second woman in her flat.

The offences were committed on October, 18, 2012, and October 30, 2016, at flats in Aberdeen.
Uwem continues to insist that he is innocent.

At the High Court in Glasgow judge Lord Arthurson told Uwem:

“This was a course of violent and predatory sexual offending, notwithstanding the four years between the two offences.”

The High Court in Glasgow heard that Uwem’s first victim was a first-year student who Uwen met by chance and invited her to his flat where he raped her

In a victim impact statement to the court the victim said that the rape had “a monumental impact on her life”.

Uwem’s second victim was attacked in her own home. Uwem restrained her, removed her lower clothing with intent to rape her.

He stood with his head bowed as Lord Arthurson told him:

“The consequences are truly catastrophic for you.”

Uwem, who has an MSc in pipe engineering, was placed on the sex offenders’ register.

I wonder what would make a man like this do such a thing?
