A man who was arrested, charged and convicted of raping a 4-year-old girl, walked free after paying a fine of N3,000 ($18), police in Nigeria said.

Now, the man was arrested again after being accused of raping a 3-year-old girl.

Mpape Police said that Monday Godswill of Kogi State, was arrested on Saturday, for raping the little girl in Suleja, Niger State.

Police said that Godswill was charged with rape last year for raping a 4-year-old girl, but unfortunately, he was released after paying a fine of N3,000.

“I cannot understand what happened to that case and why Godswill was released after paying just N3,000. I think that now, Godswill will be locked away for a long time because he is a danger to society,” a prosecutor in the case said.
