A teacher was arrested on charges of child rape after allegedly raping many girls in a school toilet, police in Nigeria said.

Oyo State Police said that they have arrested Olayinka Oluwadare Folarin, after being accused of raping five girls at the Calvary Heritage Kiddies Castle school.

The victims, who are all between the ages of 10 and 11, have been sexually abused by their teacher on a weekly basis. Two of the victims are orphans.

Folarin committed the abuse in the school toilet and threatened to kill the girls if they told anyone about what was happening. Folarin, who is a father of four children, has been fired from his previous job after being accused of rape.

The abuse came to light after a student at the school noticed one of the victims crying in the hallway. When she was approached, the child said that the teacher had raped her.

The boy notified school administrators, who called the police. Police said that they recovered lubricant gel used by the suspect hidden in the school.
