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. The lady honoured his invitation but she was eventually raped by the man.

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. According to investigation, the man had been invited by the lady but she didn’t have the intention to give in to sex with. This made him force himself on her with the intent to rape.

  1. Let’s not be too fast to conclude that he’s guilty. It might actually be a set up.Have you asked yourself why he wasn’t tried for the rape case sine 2012 only to be tried now.Something is wrong somewhere.

  2. Kufre has never been known to hurt a fly talk less of sexual abuse of opposite gender. He graduated in flying colours as engineer from FUT (location withheld for now) and proceeded to UK to do his masters after which he got employment with the oil and gas company (name also withheld). Our believe in the family is that the two ladies felt jilted and decided to cook up scenes to implicated him. Given the circumstances the case was handled; rape is the easiest offence(s) one can be convicted in the UK. The ladies are happy but to us, it is a pyhrric victory!! we shall pursue the matter to the end!!!
