A Nigerian student in the UK, Peter Odukoya, has been jailed for a year for raping a female colleague he gave a lift.

The 27-year-old Computer sciences student was jailed after his victim, a 20-year-old, secretly recorded her ordeal on her mobile phone.

Cardiff Crown Court heard Odukoya gave the drunken young woman alongside her friends a lift. The women were on a girls night out and his victim recognised him from the same university, Treforest, Pontypridd.

It was said that he dropped the other friends off first – and headed back to his own flat with the drunken young woman.

She could sense Odukoya had evil machinations and while they were in the car she turned on her phone’s recording app.

Her phone recorded her pleas for him to stop, saying, ‘Please, I have a boyfriend’ and ‘I don’t want this. I’m very drunk’.

The girl later gave the disturbing recordings to police, and Odukoya was found guilty of sexual assault at Cardiff Crown Court, and sentenced to one year imprisonment.

He will remain on the sex offenders register for 10 years.
