The Nigerian man identified as Rhys Miller-Offiong of Muirkirk Road, was handed the 15 years jail sentence at Woolwich Crown Court on Thursday, 6 December and he will be made to sign the Sex Offenders Register for an indefinite period and will be subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order upon release.

Rhys who raped a 19-year-old woman at an address in Catford on 24 August 2017, pleaded guilty at the same court on 5 November to one count of rape, one count of blackmail, four counts of distributing indecent images of a child, three counts of disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, and one count of committing an offence with intent to commit a sexual offence.

The suspect who met his victim online while using a fake profile, persuaded her to send intimate images to him before setting up a meeting with her. It was gathered that after she realized that the Nigerian man was not the person she thought she had been engaging with online after they met, he threatened to send the images to her friends and family if she refused to go with him.

She however identified the suspect through his social media profiles, and further investigations revealed that the Nigerian man has been raping and blackmailing young women and reportedly had two other victims.

The Nigerian man who bagged 15 years jail time, was sentenced as follows;

– rape; 15 years’ imprisonment plus a four-year extended licence;
– blackmail; four years’ imprisonment to run concurrently;
– four counts of distributing indecent images of a child; ten months’ imprisonment for each offence to run concurrently;

  1. He deserves to rot in prison. It’s unfortunate that the law doesn’t permit castration. I would have recommended it for him.

  2. His a gold digger, he rape at the same time extort money from the victims the sentence serves him right.

  3. I think it’s high time the government do something about the raping of a thing
    Anybody caught in such act should be shot dead immediately
    No mercy…
    He even exorted money from the young girl…
    That’s very bad
    He should die in jail

  4. What’s his gain after the atrocity, he is lucky it’s Nigeria if not it’s castration straight nonsense

  5. Social media has really made and create room for all kind of blackmailing……what can drive this idiot to start putting such act on ladies that accepted him as friend on social media and still using such means to destroy their life……

  6. He is even lucky to have been given 15yrs, if I was the one he will definitely be in jail for 25yrs. Why because he knows the consequences of what he did and he went on doing. 15 years’ imprisonment plus a four-year extended licence; is very impressive

  7. He brought that punishment upon himself, this will serve as an example to others and help fight against rape practicers

  8. He deserves to die, but dis social media of a thing some people are using it for fraud but God will reveal all of them

  9. Good for him. Such evil men should be locked up for life. He’s a maniac and rapist. This people always on daily basis give bad name to Nigeria and make us look bad. Because of this act for instance, a man lost a business deal worth more than $400,000 .this is shameful.

  10. That’s a very small punishment sef . If left for me, hmmm. Just molesting innocent children for pressure

  11. He’s not 15 years of age, they told is he bagged 15 years jail term, some people and their own assessment of stories, he should be killed for all I care because he’s not different from a killer.

  12. Both at home and abroad, Nigerians youth really need an overhaul mental orientation toward crime. It’s becoming too alarming.

  18. This kind of thing is just disturbing, my guy, haba… Please while in prison, he should also get visits from psychiatrist to help rehabilitate him… He really needs it

  19. It is shameful that some persons do not use their wisdom given to them for better things. When he comes out of jail hope he Will be a better person.

  24. Thats Good for him, wen he is out, he wont dare that again, disgracing Nigerians everywere

  25. The man is mentally insane and should be severely dealt with and if possible castrated since he does not have control over his lustful desires.

  26. Rare here and there, why would anyone false fully rare another person, I consider it evil……. Rot in jail dude.

  27. Desperate fool ..mtsheeew ..you hav not seen anything…just cool off in jail….lazy man.instead of looking for a decent job to do.. you are busy blackmailing people online….

  28. I have read this news yesterday so I need new one.but the boy has put the name of Nigeria in a black book

  29. This has brought our name to the mud. He should face the full weight of the law for being insensitive and wicked

  30. What can we say …. Nemesis caught up with him. Men should be deterred from raping women. We need to keep our females safe from sex predators

  31. That serves him right, I think life imprisonment should have been more better for the gravity of what he did

  32. This guy has wrought much havoc and should be made to face full wrath of the law for this evil he has committed.

  33. Hmmmm that’s bad and I really feel sorry for him but its the right thing to do he should serve as an example for rthise planning such
