The woman was expelled from an East London nightclub for being ill before heading to Belgravia, where she was s*xually assaulted by Warikwah in the early hours of Easter Monday, April 22, 2019.
Warikwah worked as a security patrol manager for subcontractor Securitas and was tasked with visiting patrol sites and areas in central London between 7pm. and 7 a.m. everyday.
After the 25-minute attack, the victim in her 20s texted a friend saying, “I was raped. I feel bad. This taxi won’t take me home.
She then got out of the car and took pictures of the attacker of her walking away from her. The accused was detained at his home two days after the attack.
Warikwah, dressed in a blue T-shirt and turquoise mask, hung his head over the Southwark Crown Court pier as the victim’s impact statement was read.
He occasionally looked at his younger sister, who was sitting in the public gallery to support him.
The woman said in her statement: “Since the attack my life has changed. The struggle I had with my mind and body after the attack is one of the most difficult challenges I have ever faced in my life.
“It was just positivity and good energy. He had a strong mind, but it seems like a distant memory. ‘
She said the attack led me to some of the darkest times of my life and I’m still not sure if I’m going to get over it and be 100% who I was before.
“I didn’t want to be in my body, not on a bad day yet. I had suicidal thoughts.
He said she was “emotionally and physically separated” and that it was “difficult to keep my mind strong and healthy.”
She said that she had only been at her job for a month before the attack and that since then it has been “extremely difficult to contain the trauma of what happened.”
The trial was scheduled for April but was delayed due to the pandemic that “greatly exacerbated” fear of him.
He is currently in therapy, but finds it “mentally draining”.
Judge Martin Griffith statement
“Disappointing to read” and told the s*x offender: “On the night of April 22, as an employee of a security company, he drove his company vehicle through the center of town. When you met the victim in London she was drinking heavily, her friend put her in an Uber.
She “she was sick in the taxi when she got out and the driver refused to take her further.
“She was sitting on the sidewalk of the embankment near the Temple subway station when you passed by and saw her.
“You stopped, you crossed the street, you went to talk to her, she went with you and you chased her.
She “carried them while visiting attractions as part of her job. At one point, CCTV saw her lock the vehicle she was in and enter the building to do her work.
“There may have been an element of the kidnapping, but I’m not even sure she knew about it.
“Buy 3:14, she entered a parking lot and received a ticket even though she had an entry permit that would have registered her presence in the parking lot.
“They left 25 minutes later at 3:39 am and raised the barrier at the exit. So there is no sign that she is there.
“The CCTV on the doors recorded you and your vehicle.
“In the 25 minutes they inspired you, you raped her in a quiet part of the parking lot. You said why she asked you. She woke up to find that she had raped her.
“Still, she claims that she asked him to have sex. She said it was painful.
“Your friend met you and you went to the police, you described your victim as a disaster, you screamed and cried on the phone.”
She said she “totally” agreed with the jury’s verdict.
In the past she suffered from recurring physical ailments as a result of this disturbing and stressful incident.
“He had a great discussion with what you did to him.
