Abuja - A Nigerian-born man has been accused of rape in the United Kingdom after he was mistaken for a white man while having sex with a shop worker.
According to the UK Metro, Miss X, the accuser, realised that he had made a mistake after running her hands through Sam Obeghe's hair while in the throws of passion.
During the rape trial, Miss X alleged that she had been transported to Obeghe's apartment after a drunken night out with him and a few other friends.
Upon arrival at the residence, Miss X is alleged to have begun getting intimate with Zack Garrigan, a white male who she had been partying with earlier on in the night.

The two proceeded two go to Obeghe's bedroom, where Miss X alleges she fell asleep before intercourse took place.
Garrigan reports that he left the room to look for Viagra, following which Obeghe took to his bed to get a good night's sleep in preparation for his day ahead at work.
After numerous advances, Miss X is alleged to have solicited sex from Obeghe but realised she had mistaken him for Garrigan half-way through the session.
After jumping up and running out of the room, Obeghe alleges that Miss X left the apartment and swiftly reported him to officials.
After just 27 minutes of deliberation, Obeghe was cleared of all charges, claiming that he was too upset to comment on the judgement, the Telegraph has reported.
