A TWISTED paedo and his wife have been jailed after a young girl was sexually abused and subjected to punishment beatings in a campaign of abuse.
Shola Ogundare, 49, and wife Olwafunmilayo Emmanuel, 35, were jailed for 15 years and four years respectively following a trial at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.
The court heard how the girl was sexually abused and beaten with a wooden spoon and a makeshift whip.
A young boy, also aged under 11, was also beaten with weapons by the couple.
A jury heard Emmanuel encouraged her husband during the attacks.
Ogundare was jailed for 15 years after he was convicted of attempted rape, sexual assault, child cruelty and assault.
Emmanuel was found guilty of four counts of cruelty to a person under 16 and will face deportation back to Africa when she is freed.
Both denied wrongdoing.
Simon Blakeborough prosecuting said: "Mrs Emanuel allowed this to take place and she encouraged him to hit [the victims] harder.
"Ogundare made the boy kneel on the ground with his hands in the air for a significant period of time which would lead his arms hurting and his back aching."
There is no doubt both suffered physical and psychological harm at the hands of both of you.
Police began investigating in July 2018 and the children are now recovering from their ordeals.
Defending Emmanuel, Robert Elias claimed she had also been a victim of her paedo husband.
He said: "She was a woman out of her depth, She says she had devoted herself to her husband and she has now lost him and faces deportation.
"She has now been forced to accept that her husband is a paedophile who has taken advantage of her good nature. To that extent she is a victim in this case.
Sentencing Judge John Potter called Ogundare "a wicked and sinister bully".
He told Emmanuel: "These were callous and calculated acts.
"On (one) occasion you saw the girl being beaten and said 'if I were you I would hit her harder'. It must have been plain to you what harm was being done.
"Your dreadful sense of loyalty to him is bought into focus by your willingness to subject the children to acts of violence yourself.'
"In the trial I saw both children give evidence. Whilst they both showed great bravery there is no doubt both suffered physical and psychological harm at the hands of both of you."
Ogundare was also made subject of an indefinite sexual harm prevention order and was ordered to sign the Sex Offender Register for the rest of his life.
