A Nigerian man, Jeffrey Oviasogie, who is a resident in Aberdeen, Scotland, has been sentenced to four years and eight months by a High Court in Glasgow for raping a woman.
Oviasogie pleaded guilty to raping a 29-year-old woman in Bon Accord Terrace Gardens early on September 26, 2021.
The 21-year-old attacked the victim and forced her down on his return home from a night out in Aberdeen.
As per reports, he had been employed as a support worker at Camphill special needs school in the city at the time.
The report has further added that the Nigerian national’s visitor visa has expired six(6) months pre to the attack. He had been living in the United Kingdom since 2018.
As per the information, the victim had been on a night out with friends before going home in the early hours and met her victim walking.
He, then, suddenly came up and started talking to her and followed her as she continued into Bon Accord Terrace Gardens.
Meanwhile, Prosecutor John McElroy stated earlier that, “She began to feel uneasy. As she walked along a vertical path, the woman was aware of Oviasogie behind her.”
Prosecutor added, “Her coming memory is of being on her back in a muddy region with him on top of her. She was crying and shouting for help, but she was unable to move beneath his weight.”
McElroy added that Oviasogie shouted her down to “shut up” and raped her as he held her down. While, “She continued screaming & shouting. She was petrified,” a man heard her cries and spotted Oviasogie on top of the woman.
When the culprit realised this, he fled but was seen by the man to be wearing a distinctive red baseball cap.
