A Gambian asylum seeker who raped a British woman during a series of sex attacks has been jailed for life
Abdoulie Alex Njie “concocted a campaign of rape” in north Staffordshire, including targeting a woman in her 20s from Shrewsbury as she walked through a park.
Njie was convicted by a jury of six rapes and one attempted rape in the Stoke-on-Trent area.
The 33-year-old, who is wanted in his home country for shooting a police officer, had denied eight counts of rape, attempted rape and one of possessing an imitation firearm.
Today Judge Paul Glenn, at Stoke on Trent Crown Court, ordered the three other charges to lie on file and said Njie must serve at least nine years in prison. He also recommended Njie be deported upon his release.
The Shrewsbury woman was attacked in the early hours of June 26 2004 as she walked from one friend’s house to another in the Cobridge area of Stoke.
