A child rapist has been sentenced to a total of 30 years

Adeoba Sijuwade, 42, committed the offences against the two girls in Lancaster.

Sijuwade’s youngest victim was just six-years-old when he first sexually abused her.

Sijuwade later sent her death threats to intimidate her not to tell anyone about the abuse.

Sijuwade, formerly of Kersal Way, Salford, but now of no fixed address, was found guilty of multiple rapes and sexual assaults by a jury at Preston Crown Court earlier this year.

Yesterday (July 26), he was given the 30-year custodial sentence – It comprised of a 24 year prison sentence and a six-year extended licence period to run after his sentence
