He was also convicted of trying to rape a second girl in her flat. On October, 18, 2012, and October 30, 2016, the offence were committed at flats in Aberdeen.
Judge lord Arthurson told Uwem, at the High Court in Glasgow: “This was a course of violent and predatory sexual offending, notwithstanding the four years between the two offences.”
The court heard that the first victim of Uwem’s was a first-year student who Uwen met by chance and invited her to his flat. And he raped her.
In a victim 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, take away her lower clothing with the mind 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 holder in pipe engineering, was placed on the sex offenders’ register.
