Ibrahim, is that a Sikh name? A Bahai’? Didn’t think so either.

A teenager who organised the gang rape of a vulnerable 11-year-old girl was unmasked by a judge today and sentenced to five years’ detention.
Ibraheem Giwa, 15, was 13 when he and fellow gang members took turns to sexually assault the child on three occasions including once in a McDonald’s lavatory. He was convicted of two charges of rape.
Judge Patricia Lees ordered that Giwa, who had denied the charges and shown “no remorse”, lose the anonymity usually afforded to an offender of his age. She said the girl was subjected to a “high degree of degradation and sexual violation”.
Inner London crown court heard that the first attack on the girl was carried out by Giwa and another boy in Central Park, East Ham, in September 2009. The second was at Giwa’s east London home and involved up to eight friends he had summoned by phone and text.
On the final occasion in March 2010, the girl was cornered in the lavatory of McDonald’s in East Ham.
A second youth, now aged 16, who cannot be named, was ordered to be detained at a young offender institution for a year after admitting raping the girl at the restaurant.
