    Ibraheem Egunbambi, 29, had been turned down by the woman, 21, after a groupincluding the victim’s friend and two of Egunbambi’s palshad gone back to a property in Moston following a night out in Manchester city centre.

    Egunbambi had tried to kiss the woman but she ‘rebuffedhis advances and instead decided to have consensual sex with one of his friends, Manchester Crown Court heard.

    But while she was facing the wall in the dark bedroom of the home, Egunbambi raped her, pretending to be the friend who had been having sex with her.

    She quickly realised it was a different man and turned on the light to see it was Egunbambi, who she had earlier turned down.

    The victim immediately left the property and reported the incident to the police.

    Egunbambi, of Leeds, claimed it was ‘just a bit of fun’, but a jury unanimously found him guilty of rape.

    ‘It was not just a bit of fun,’ Judge Patrick Field QC told him.

    ‘This was a nasty, disrespectful and unpleasant violation of a young woman.

    Egunbambi, an economics graduate of Manchester Metropolitan University, was jailed for four-and-a-half years for the rape, which occurred in December 2018.

    The woman had been out with a friend in Manchester city centre when they met Egunbambi and two other men.

    But after the group returned to one of the men’s property, she made it clear to Egunbambi that she did not want to have sex with him.

    ‘You knew she wanted to have nothing to do with you of a sexual nature,’ 法官说.

    ‘While she was facing the wall you slipped onto the bed behind her,’ 他加了.

    ‘You knew it was important that she thought that she was still having sexual intercourse with him, as indeed she did.

    Once she realised it was Egunbambi, 吓坏了, she told him to stop and he did.

    ‘But this didn’t stop you trying to justify your frankly deplorable behaviour by saying it was just a bit of fun,’ the judge added.

    ‘There can be no doubt as to the upset and distress that she was caused, both at the time and subsequently.

    ‘That distress can only have been compounded by having the ordeal of reliving these events while giving evidence in court, and being accused of being a liar in the process.

    Egunbambi, who had no previous convictions, got a job as an accountant after graduating, and had also been employed as a support worker helping adults with learning difficulties.

    ‘It was a single serious mistake, it will have a dramatic effect on his life,’ his barrister Barry Grennan said.

    ‘I don’t seek to draw comparisons [with the victim].

    ‘He will lose his job, he will lose his home, his loss of good character is very important to him, but he only has himself to blame.

    After the hearing, Detective Constable Paul Shacklady, of GMP’s City of Manchester’s Operation Challenger Unit said: ‘This is an appalling crime.

    ‘Egunbambi had absolutely no respect for the fact that the victim had specifically expressed she wasn’t interested in him earlier on in the night, instead feeling he was entitled to violate and rape her.

    ‘Hopefully this sentencing sends a clear a message this this behaviour will absolutely not be tolerated and any offenders will be made to face the full consequences of their actions.
