The son of a prominent Nigerian politician has had his jail sentence for raping a woman in Aberdeen reduced from 12 years to nine.

Ekene Anoliefo, who was branded “a dangerous predator” by a judge, succeeded in having his prison term cut at the Court of Criminal Appeal in Edinburgh on Wednesday.

The 38-year-old rapist was jailed in May 2009 for the brutal rape of a 19-year-old woman in July 2008.

He was also convicted of six breach of the peace charges and an assault charge – however, these charges were later quashed by the Appeal Court in August 2012.
