Det Con Jason Shallis, from the Met's East London Sapphire squad based at Limehouse, said after the hearing: "The woman was subjected to a violent, terrifying attack. The sentence reflects the severity of Akamo's actions."
Akamo has been recommended for deportation when he finishes his seven years inside. A charge of attempted rape is to lie on file.
