Rhys Miller Offiong used fake social media profiles to convince young women to send compromising images of themselves before blackmailing and raping one of them.

He has now been jailed for 15 years with a four-year extended licence at Woolwich Crown Court on Thursday, 6 December.

On his release, he will be made to sign the Sex Offenders Register for an indefinite period and will be subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

Offiong had pleaded guilty 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.

An investigation was launched after he raped a 19-year-old woman at an address in Catford on 24 August 2017. He had met the woman online using a fake profile.

He had initially persuaded her to send intimate images to him and then set up a meeting with her. When the victim attended and realised Offiong was not the person she thought she had been engaging with online, he threatened to send the images to her friends and family if she refused to go with him.

Under duress, the woman went with him to an address in Catford where she was raped. Further investigations established two other young women who had been snared online by the convict and tricked into sending compromising images and videos of themselves to him.

Detective Constable Paul Harakis of the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command said: “Miller-Offiong is a predatory sex offender who has drawn unsuspecting girls into his sexual trap via social media.”

  2. Why given him just 15years , you suppose to be jailed for life , he is an animal , they think say na naija here

  3. He deserved more severe punishment. Cases of rape would have subsided appreciably if more severe punishment is served to perpetrators of such criminal act.

  4. That’s exactly what he deserve. Even his stay in the jail should be extended because this issue of rape is getting out of hands on earth

  5. His cup is now full that is why he was caught. This guy is really a wicked guy. He should be released from jail when he is 50 years old. They should extend his jail term by 11 years so that he will learn his lessons in a hard way.

  6. Evil doers,it serves him right.when you look at there face they appear so innocent but very wicked at heart

  16. That is good, the wicked ones shall never go unpunished, after the 15 years he will learn his lesson.

  17. That serves him right. He should be severely punished and should serve as a lesson to others. This act of rape needs to be stopped because it is seriously getting out of hand

  18. Nigerians always show themselves anyway rape is not identified with a single country, but God will judge you 16 years for ruining someone’s life

  29. that really bad….. they can’t jail him because he is not up to 18yrs……anyway what he did was bad……

  30. That serves him right but they should have just hanged him, evil minded human being moving around like good people.

  31. Good for him Nigerians should learn from this if is in Nigeria now he will go without judgement or facing the law but this is exactly how it is being done in USA.

  32. The punishment given to him serves him right,wish other countries will emulate london,the rate of blackmail and rape will reduce.
