22-Year-Old Oluwadamilare Baiyewu has been jailed for 24 years for the horrific assaults including raping a 17-year-old at knife point and attacked another in a space of one week.
He was today sentenced today at Woolwich Crown Court where he will serve a minimum of 16 years in prison and will then be on license for eight years.
He’s been described as a very dangerous man.
‘Oluwadamilare Baiyewu is a dangerous, calculating, predatory rapist,” said Detective Constable Chris Hammond of the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command. ‘He volunteered at a local church, creating the image that he was a pillar of the community, which I believe was an attempt to mask his true nature as a sexual predator.
‘I would like to praise his victims for having the strength to come forward to police and give their evidence in court.
‘The streets of Thamesmead are now a safer place without the presence of Baiyewu.’
