The Police in Ekiti have arrested a 57-year-old Vice-principal of Saint Mary’s Girls Grammar School, Ikole Ekiti for allegedly raping a 12-year-old student in his school.
The accused Mr. Taiwo Ajayi was said to have committed the offence on March 18, right inside his office.
Mr. Taiwo Ajayi who has been accused of committing similar offence with another student on his office table was reported to the police after a teacher became suspicious of his activity after the student who had entered the VP's office failed to come out.
Out of curiosity the teacher, according to the Police PPRO, Mr Victor Babayemi said: “The witness went near the door and discovered it was bolted from behind, she knocked and the movements, sounds and subsequent demeanor of both the suspect and the victim gave them away.”
Although the Vice-Principal denied the allegations against him, Babayemi said: “The report of a medical examination confirmed that the victim’s hymen is not intact.”
The Police, however, said the accused will soon be arraigned in court for defilement based on the evidence against him.
