A MAN who sexually abused a young child, giving her money after one of his sex attacks, has been convicted.

Bashir Ntego was found guilty at the end of his trial at Oxford Crown Court yesterday.

He had denied three counts alleging the sexual assault of a child under 13.

Prosecutors said that the 43-year-old of Turner View, Headington, sexually abused his young child victim on three occasions and gave her money after one of his sex attacks.

After one of the assaults the child told Ntego she would ‘pour oil’ into his eyes if he did it again.

Speaking about her ordeal to the police she said the abuse made her feel ‘disgusting.’

As his trial reached the final stages yesterday Ntego decided not to go to the witness box to give evidence.

His defence barrister Dominic Thomas added that he would not be calling any defence evidence.

During his closing speech to jurors Mr Thomas said: “All that I can say is that these events did not happen.”

Earlier in the trial the jury was told that Ntego was previously convicted of sexual assault of a child under 13 upon two victims in Scotland.

Speaking of that past conviction Mr Thomas said: “He, we understand, still denies the truth behind the conviction in Glasgow.”

He went on to tell jurors “Your fundamental question is really can I trust the evidence from her to such an extent that I am sure.”

Isabel Delamere, meanwhile, for the prosecution said the victim was ‘truthful.’

She told jurors: “She is a truthful child who has no motive to lie, to make this up.”

After about an hour of deliberations jurors handed unanimous guilty verdicts to all counts and presiding Judge Maria Lamb adjourned the case for sentencing.

Ntego was remanded into custody to await that hearing which will be held at the same court on September 21.
