The vice-principal of Saint Mary’s Girls Grammar School, Ikole-Ekiti in Ekiti State, has landed in hot water after he was caught defiling one of his students in his office.

The suspect, Mr. Taiwo Ajayi, 57, was said to have sneaked the victim (name withheld) into his office, and was having carnal knowledge of her when a female staff caught him in the act.

According to a police statement in Ado Ekiti, yesterday, Ajayi allegedly committed the offence inside his office, and one of the staff in the  school had reported the matter to the police after suspecting the  movement of the young girl (names withheld) inside the vice principal’s office.

According to the police PRO, Victor Babayemi, “the witness became apprehensive when the student, after spending a considerable time in the VP’s office, did not come out.

“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.”

Investigation revealed that the suspect had a similar case in the past which was not reported and added that the victim also admitted that the suspect had carnal knowledge of her on his table.

“The report of a medical examination confirmed that the victim’s hymen is not intact,” Babayemi said

Ajayi was, however, said to have denied the allegation

“With the evidence against him, he will soon be arraigned in court for defilement,” according to the police.
