One of Britain’s worst online sexual predators who targeted 2,000 people across the world before selling sickening footage as boxsets has been jailed for 32 years.

Abdul Elahi posed as a rich stockbroker on Sugar Daddy websites before blackmailing his victims into performing degrading sexual acts.

The 26-year-old then sold the footage to paedophiles around the world in packaged boxsets – which included young women abusing themselves, siblings and their children.

From the sales of his material, he would then launder the money through Amazon gift cards and buy electrical goods to sell on for cash.

In one single sale, the McDonald’s worker traded a terabyte of twisted images and footage – amounting to 1,000 hours of video and 310,000 photos.

Some of Elahi’s victims attempted suicide after he uploaded videos of them to porn websites even bragging: “Pornhub are going to love this.”

The warped paedophile previously admitted 158 online sexual offences after he targeted nearly 2,000 victims in 34 countries between 2017 and 2019.

Elahi was branded “depraved”, “abhorrent” and “callous” by a judge as he was jailed for 32 years with an extended license period of eight years.

Sentencing at at Birmingham Crown Court, Judge Sarah Buckingham said: “Your offending is prolific and involved at least 72 victims.

“You showed a complete and utter disregard for the welfare of every victim you manipulated irrespective of their age and there was a sadistic element to your offending.

“Your distribution of images was on a vast scale and allowed you to make money which you then laundered.

“You used multiple fake online personas to encourage women to perform sexual acts. These were not porn stars bur real women who provided the images.

“You were sophisticated in your operation. You wiped imagery from your phone , you packaged up these products into boxsets to be sold.

“There are so many examples of your sadistic and degrading exploitation and blackmail of these women it would take days to cover it all again.

“Your demands increased in their viciousness and brutality and however much your victims pleaded for mercy you ignored their pleas.

“Even when they were driven to suicide you sneered in the face of their despair.

“In my judgement you do pose a significant risk of members of the public. You are an extremely dangerous individual.

“You were motivated by a feeling of power and control over women, you were attracted to the financial reward you could achieve.

“You were utterly devoid of any empathy and regret for the pain and suffering you inflicted.

“Whatever your claims you did this for money I am satisfied that you harbour sadistic and paedophilic characteristics and are aroused by the abuse of children along with the abuse of women.

“You derived pleasure from manipulating, humiliating and distressing your victims. You were totally unmoved by their pleas to be left alone.

“You were prepared to, and did, offend, You showed no insight or remorse and at the same time breathtaking arrogance.

“You will remain a danger for some years to come. You are an example of one of the very worst type of predatory offenders ever apprehended thus far.”

Elahi boasted about his jet-set lifestyle and how he used private jets to fly to Los Angeles – in fact, he was living with his parents and working in McDonalds.

Prosecutor Andrew Langdale had branded Elahi “one of the most serious sexual predators online that has been seen before this court”.

He added: “Elahi is in a league of his own. He taught others how to abuse women and children.

“This is child abuse imagery he distributed; we argue he is a dangerous predator.

“Abuse against others was his full time occupation.”

Graham Arnold, defending, said: “It may be something that means nothing to the victims but he wants me to express his deepest remorse.

“He pushed people to do depraved things at their own great cost. He is trying to look into himself to see why and it is a very dark place.

“The truth is that he is struggling to find any light but all I can say on his behalf is that he is trying.”

Appearing alongside Elahi in the dock was Kirsty Nicholls, 35, who previously pleaded guilty to two charges of sexual assault of a child and one of making an indecent photo.

After Elahi’s arrest in July 2018, officers from the NCA, the FBI, and Australian and New Zealand police found phone messages between the pair.

Elahi requested that Nicholls abused a young boy, to which she was “entirely compliant” and even made suggestions on how to carry out the abuse

Nicholls, of Northolt, Middlesex, was jailed for six years and nine months today.

Judge Buckinghamshire said: “It was through Sugar Daddy websites that you encountered Elahi, the very worst type of man.

“One who used, manipulated and blackmailed vulnerable women to get what he wanted.

“The difference between you and his victims was that you were willing to do as he asked.

“You are intelligent and aware what you were doing was horribly wrong and in your own words sick.

“You became immersed in a sexualised world and became caught up in the world of online sex work without any thought of the implications.”
