You Won’t Believe What Soldiers Allegedly Did To University Student At Military CheckPoint

A female student of the Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba Akoko (AAUA) in Ondo State was forcefully defiled on Wednesday, 31st of July, allegedly by soldiers who were attached to 32 Artillery Brigade.

According to Linda Ikeji’s Blog, the soldiers had allegedly had forceful intercourse with the 300-level student of the Department of Religious and African Studies at a military checkpoint between Owo and Ikare-Akoko in the Akoko North-East Local Government of Ondo State. An eyewitness who had a chat with The Nation revealed that the victim was going back to school when the act occurred.

“We were coming from Akungba in a mini-bus on Wednesday evening. On getting to the checkpoint, a soldier looked inside our vehicle, pointed to the victim and ordered her to get down. We didn’t know why he did that. When the lady alighted, he took her to their mini-barracks and asked us to leave the scene.

The witness further revealed that they left the pleas as they realised that the soldiers were not willing to release the victim any time soon, and later discovered that the soldiers had violated her. She was then taken to the hospital for treatment after reporting the incident to the police.

“Out of fear we left the place, hoping that she would be released immediately, but she was not released until one hour later. We discovered that she had been raped by the soldiers at the checkpoint.

“Immediately, we went to Ikare Police Station to report the incident and took the victim to Ondo State Specialist Hospital, Ikare-Akoko for examination and treatment. She is still in hospital and doctors have confirmed that she was raped” she revealed.

Mr Femi Johnson, the police spokesman in the state when contacted said that he was yet to be briefed on the incident. The incident was however confirmed by a source at the Ikare Police Station who said that at about 7:15 pm on Wednesday, the case was reported to the command. The source further revealed that the police was currently investigating the case.

Mr Victor Akinpelumi, the Head of Media and Protocol Unit of AAUA, also confirmed the incident as he said that the management of the University was carrying out an investigation.
