A commercial driver indentified as Ojolo, has turned himself in for the alleged rape of a female student of the College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti on September 17.
The 21 year old man said that he committed the evil act at about 8pm while the victim who was reportedly returning from a hospital where she had gone for treatment boarded his vehicle.
Instead of taking her to her destination, the driver changed his direction into a nearby bush where he raped her.
The incident caused a fight between the student of the college and commercial drivers at Ikere Ekiti, which led to unrest in the area, destruction of properties and consequently close down of the school indefinitely.
Alberto Adeyemi, Police Public Relations Officer, on Friday said that the suspect was under police custody.
Mr. Adeyemi, a Superintendent of Police, said that the suspect turned himself to the palace of the Ogoga of Ikere, Oba Adejimi Adu Alagbado, who then handed him over to the police.
“Yes, the suspect is with us; the matter is under investigation and by the time we round off our investigation, the suspect will be charged to court,” he said.
