A 21-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.
