Ablolom Okbazge, 27, was sentenced to nine years behind bars for the Wigan town centre rape

27-year-old Ablolom Okbazge attacked the lone female who had been separated from her friends during a night out in Wigan Town Centre.


Bolton Crown Court heard how the 37-year-old victim was approached by Okbazge before being taken down a side alley off King Street in the early hours of December 18, 2021.


The court was told how the violent sex offender then raped the traumatised woman, subjecting her to a "prolonged and horrific" ordeal.


Okbazge was arrested the day after the attack at the Brittania Hotel in Standish and was remanded in custody until the trial.

Detective Constable Ray Williams said: "This has been a very traumatic ordeal for the victim from the moment was approached in the street and led into an alleyway by Ablolom Okbazge, right up to the present day.


"What Okbazge did that day is likely to affect the victim for the rest of her life and the trauma will not simply go away just because the court process has concluded.


"I would like to thank the victim for her resilience and bravery in reporting this incident to the police and giving us the opportunity to put a dangerous man in prison.


"I believe that because of her bravery, this has prevented the same thing from happening to somebody else."


Ablolom Okbazge was found guilty of rape and sentenced to nine years in prison.


He was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life.
