This was the second of five expected trials.

Ayinde was previously found guilty of raping a separate daughter in a 2011 trial and sentenced to 40 years.

This brings his total sentence to 90 years — thus far.

Ayinde began raping some of his daughters when they were as young as 8-years-old, and continued over the course of almost 30 years until he and his wife, Beverly Ayinde, separated.

[The sexual assaults] occurred in numerous homes across northern New Jersey, even while the family was under watch of state child welfare officials, according to NBC New York. Some of the rapes even took place in an abandoned funeral home.

The family moving as far away as Florida to avoid investigation after case workers removed multiple children from the Ayinde household in 2000, resulting in Mr. Ayinde being arrested for kidnapping for trying to take them from state custody in a medical center, NBC New York reported.

He pleaded guilty to lesser charges and received a year’s probation – as he continued raping one daughter for at least another two years, according to officials.

The depraved father also beat and starved the girls using wooden boards and steel-toed boots for even ‘minor transgressions,’ Ayinde’s wife testified at the first trial.

Beverly Ayinde also told jurors that her husband “equaled himself to being a prophet:”

“As time went on, he was god-like. I had to call him, ‘my god.’ He equated himself to Jesus Christ … He would sit us all down and lecture us about his greatness and his power … At another point, he equated himself to Prince and Michael Jackson.”

As previously reported by NewsOne, Ayinde, real name Charles McGill, directed ‘The Fugees’, “Killing Me Softly” video, winning Best R&B Video at the 1996 MTV Music Video Awards.
