Ibrahim Giwa Jailed for Just 5 Years for Leading his Street Gang to Rape a 11 Year old Girl on More than one Occasion

A 13-year-old ringleader of a gang that raped an 11-year-old girl in a McDonald's toilet was today jailed for five years.

The girl had met Ibraheem Giwa, now 15, at a summer camp and was raped by him in his bedroom in east London before he watched as six other gang members attacked her.

He had previously raped her in a park and before that a fellow gang member aged 14 had raped her in the toilet of a McDonald's.

The girl said she was crying all the way through the attacks but was told by the gang of up to eight boys to shut up as people would think they had done something wrong to her.

As if the ordeal of being raped wasn't enough, the teenagers, thought to be part of the notorious Say No More Gang, beat her up as a warning not to tell anyone about what had happened.

Only two were convicted and two more boys were acquitted at trial but prosecutor Emily Smaller warned further prosecutions may follow. Read More
