A Christian school principal in Nigeria, shocked people by asking a court to sentence him to a fine despite being convicted of raping a girl.

Ado-Ekiti police said that they have arrested 60-year-old Taiwo Ajayi, after being accused of raping the 12-year-old girl in his office.

In court, Ajayi has been convicted of raping a minor. Justice Oluwatoyin Abodunde sentenced Ajayi to serve life in prison.

According to the police investigation, Ajayi was the principal of the St. Mary’s Girls Grammar School, when he committed the crime against the 12-year-old student.

The court heard that Ajayi lured the girl into his office and locked the door behind her. He then put the girl on a table and raped her.

A teacher knocked on the door, but Ajayi refused to open and continued on with the rape. He warned the teacher not to tell anybody about the rape.

The teacher quickly alerted a colleague, and they broke down the door and stopped the attack. The principal was later suspended from school.

Ajayi asked the court for leniency due to the fact that he was a first time offender and a married father of children.

He urged the judge to let him off with a fine, but Abodunde sentenced him to life in prison.
