A British-Nigerian, Adeyinka Ajose, has been imprisoned for raping a girl of under 13-year-old in Croydon, London.
Ajose was arrested on November 11, 2020 following a distress call received by the Police on November 10, 2020 from a residential address in Addington, Croydon.
The 64 year-old Ajose, was jailed 18 years in prison for raping his victim four times.
He was sentenced for four count charges on the rape of a “female child under 13, one count of the sexual assault of a female child under 13 and one count of assault/ ill treatment of a child.”
Speaking on the issue, the investigating detective, Matthew Amos, said: “Those that abuse the trust of the most vulnerable in our society are some of the most insidious offenders. The offences committed by Ajose are truly shocking and the sentence he has received reflects this.
“If the victim had not had the courage to come forward, Ajose’s campaign of abuse may well have continued. I urge anyone who has been a victim of sexual abuse or who knows anything about it, to come forward to police. We have specially trained officers who will listen to and support you.
“The trauma that victims suffer can last a lifetime and impacts all those around them. I hope that the sentence given will go some way to bringing the victim and her family justice, so that they can begin to rebuild their lives.
“I would also like to thank the victim for her bravery and support throughout this investigation.”
