Nigerian teacher arraigned for raping schoolgirl in UK

A Nigerian science teacher who groomed a 14-year-old pupil before repeatedly raping her has been told he faces “a very long time” in prison, Guardian.co.uk reported on Wednesday.

Keith Ogunsola, lured his victim to hotels around the country pretending he was going to give her extra science tuition.

Croydon Crown Court heard the 47-year-old started his abuse in January 2001.

When giving the victim a lift, he told her he really fancied her and tried to kiss her.

A month later, he met the student at the former Aerodrome Hotel, in Purley Way, Croydon, where he took her virginity by raping her.

The court heard he then embarked on a three-year secret affair with her, telling his victim to wear skirts with no underwear when they met so it was easier to have sex with her.

The court heard he also booked stays at the Premier Inn and Hilton hotel in Purley Way.

Prosecutor, Hanna Llewellyn-Waters, said, “She was manoeuvred into a position where she did not tell anyone, believing her word would not be believed against a teacher and the defendant told her what to do, say and wear.

“When she wanted to have a boyfriend he became jealous and when she refused to have sex with the defendant, he ripped her clothes off and raped her again.”

On Friday, May 18, a jury took two-and-a-half-hours to find the married father-of-three guilty of rape, indecent assault and engaging in sexual activity while in a position of trust.

The court heard Ogunsola, who taught in Sutton between 1998 and 2001, avoided jail in 2009 after being convicted of kissing one of his pupils in Ilford, Essex.

Remanding Ogunsola in custody, Judge Jeff Blackett said, “I have a pretty good idea in my own mind what the sentence is going to be.”
