Com­mer­cial Driver Who Raped Stu­dent Turns Self In

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - FRONT PAGE -

A21-year-old man who raped a fe­male stu­dent of the Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion, Ikere-ek­iti on Septem­ber 17, has turned him­self in, the po­lice said yes­ter­day.

The sus­pect was said to have com­mit­ted the crime at about 8.00 p.m. while con­vey­ing the vic­tim, who was re­turn­ing from a hos­pi­tal where she had gone for treat­ment.

She was at the time the only pas­sen­ger in the mini bus known as Akoto.

Ojolo, as he was sim­ply iden­ti­fied, the Po­lice said, sud­denly changed di­rec­tion into a nearby bush where he raped the stu­dent.

The in­ci­dent caused a fight be­tween stu­dents of the col­lege and com­mer­cial driv­ers at Ikere Ek­iti.

The up­roar, which re­sulted in the de­struc­tion of properties, led the col­lege’s man­age­ment to close down the school in­def­i­nitely.

The Po­lice Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Al­berto Adeyemi, con­firmed that the Po­lice had de­tained the sus­pect.

Adeyemi said Ojolo turned him­self to the palace of the Ogoga of Ikere, Oba Ade­jimi Adu Alag­bado, who then handed him over to the Po­lice.

“The sus­pect is with us and the mat­ter is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion and he will be charged to court at the end of our in­ves­ti­ga­tions,” he said.
