47 year old Nigerian married father of three, Keith Ogunsola, (pictured above) a science teacher from Banstead in Surrey, has been told by a court in the UK that he will go to jail for a long time for the rape of a 14 year old student in his school.
Mr Ogunsola is accused of repeatedly raping the unnamed pupil under the pretense of giving her “extra science tuition”. He would book hotel rooms and lure the female victim there, where he would proceed to have sex with her. The court heard yesterday that Ogunsola started raping the girl in 2001 but she didn’t tell anyone for a long time because she didn’t think anyone would believe her story against a teacher.
This is the first time the paedophile teacher will be in court. In 2008, he grabbed a 14-year-old pupil and stuck his tongue in her mouth while they were in his school office. Ogunsola also asked girls in his chemistry class whether they had performed oral sex.
The court heard he had already been warned by the school’s headteacher about his conduct with female students before the assaults took place. Ogunsola was cleared of two sexual assaults at that school in 2000 and another sexual assault at a different school in 2006.
Despite this, he was spared jail because of his “weak heart”. But not this time. He was told in court yesterday by the presiding judge that he will be going to prison for a very long time.
