A teacher was arrested on charges of child rape after allegedly raping a young girl in a school bathroom, police in Nigeria said.

Lagos State Police said that the 10-year-old girl told police how her teacher, Adeniran Adebayo, took advantage and defiled her inside the school bathroom.

The teacher threatened to spank her if she made noise while having sex in the bathroom.

She said that one of the teachers at the school heard her cry and burst into the toilet, forcing Adebayo, a father of two children, to stop the assault.

Prosecutors told a court that the teacher raped the girl at least three times. The latest incident unfolded while the girl was doing her homework after school hours at the school.

The teacher approached and asked her to follow him. He took her to the toilet within the premises of the school and threatened to flog her if she screamed.

The teacher denied the allegations. The teacher was released from custody on N300,000 ($1 = N162.05) bail.
