Months after his lavish wedding in Nigeria, man jailed for rape in Aberdeen

A Nigerian oil and gas engineer was, yesterday, jailed for seven years for the rape of an 18-year-old student in Aberdeen, three months after his lavish wedding in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State in December, 2017.

Kufre Umoh Uwem, 34, of 6 Waterton Lawn, Stoneywood, Aberdeen, who was a sub-sea project engineer, 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. .

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 court heard that Uwem’s first victim was a first-year student who Uwen met by chance and invited her to his flat. Once there 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.
